Eric discusses the topic of restoring U.S. manufacturing competitiveness with Everett Frank, CEO of DigiSource. Everett started his career in distribution, but has worked for EMS companies large and small in many roles. His current venture is focused on sourcing support for both sides of the OEM-EMS relationship, by making ‘intelligent introductions’. They especially help with component sourcing issues, since components are 80% of BOM cost. This is a fascinating discussion, including a call to action for companies wanting to have a voice in how this new U.S. administration spends the $4 trillion they are talking about throwing at infrastructure. There’s a 4-5 week window on the comments period, so Frank recommends listeners of this conversation contact IPC’s government relations task force ASAP.
