Jim K. Principal Engineer, Power Technology Company

August Electronics was engaged as our Canadian Contract Manufacturer to provide units for the Canadian Government.  From the first day, it was clear that they were very capable of the job, had the processes in place to meet the manufacturing standards for our CSA certified products and would be very accommodating.  Throughout the complete production process August demonstrated their technical expertise in manufacturing and troubleshooting.  This led to a subsequent project to retrofit 40 pre-production units. August’s technical expertise and troubleshooting skills shone through as we discovered that these units were in various states of repair.
