Golden West Technology is proud to announce a new addition to their staff, Juan Martinez. Juan has decided to join Golden West Technology as our new Quality Manager. He has been working in the medical labs and consumer electronics industries in the area of quality for approximately 15 years. GWT is fortunate to have identified a key person who has the skills and experience to lead our diverse inspection group as well as capably maintain and develop our well established Quality System centered around ISO9001 and AS9100D. We know it’s all in good hands!
This year’s audit by our registrar NSF-ISR was particularly challenging for a number of reasons… the first one being that GWT had to comply with the latest ISO and AS91OO standard upgrades that take us to 2015 and 2016 respectively. Secondly, over the past 19 years of compliance, our original Quality Manual’s organization and configuration needed to be updated to totally match the most current standards. Not only did we pass the audit with flying colors but we also have a brand new Quality Manual that has a realigned and reformatted, fresh look that is easier to use and apply. Huge thanks to Derek Bannon, our Quality Manager, for successfully navigating us through this process.
Once again, GWT chooses to be a consistent mainstay over at the Anaheim Convention Center based MD&M Trade Show. The medical industry is one of our major targeted markets along with industrial and aerospace. GWT takes the unique approach of manning our booth with hands-on professionals like Scott Morse-Director of Sales, Derek Bannon-Quality Manager, Mike Kutzle-Purchasing/Materials Manager, and Russell Rieth, our current President. We were enthusiastically displaying sample PCBAs and assemblies in our relatively new-look trade show booth. We were very excited to see some of our current and future Customers that were either visiting the show or exhibiting as well. Hope to see you all there again next year in February of 2019!
Golden West Technology is proud to announce a new addition to their staff, Scott Morse. Scott has decided to join Golden West Technology as Director of Sales. He has been working in the electronic distribution and manufacturing industry for over 30 years, Scott has held positions as Field Sales, Sales Management, and Branch Manager primarily at Arrow and Avnet. He also held a position of N.A. Distribution and Sales Operations Manager for Taiwan Semiconductor. We feel his extensive experience and industry contacts will be a great asset for our customers as well as for our Company’s growth strategy.
For a small manufacturing company of approximately 50 employees, Golden West Technology maintains an incredibly high level of accumulated service yearsï¿½ 870 years to be accurate. Thatï¿½s roughly an average of 17 years per employee. Furthermore, about 70% of our employees have been with the company for over 10 years. We definitely see it as a company asset translating into a very high competence level and noticeable quality performanceï¿½ something you the customer can tangibly benefit from with good quality products and strong, positive results.
