Samtec rated no. 1

19 November 2003 Electronics Technology

For the seventh year in a row Samtec was ranked no. 1 in the Bishop and Associates "2002 customer survey of the electronic connector industry."

Bishop and Associates, a connector industry consulting firm, completed its annual 'US customer survey of the electronic connector industry' (see www.bishopinc.com). This survey is one of the largest industry reports published. It ranks what attributes are important to customers when selecting connector companies, and it compares customers' perceptions of 34 top connector manufacturers.

Samtec received the highest overall rating of the 34 connector companies surveyed.

Some of the most important criteria when selecting connector suppliers are: product quality; meeting requested shipping date; overall connector performance; meeting acknowledged shipping date; reasonable lead times.

Samtec was ranked no. 1 in performance on these 'most important criteria' measuring quality, on-time delivery, connector performance and lead times. It was ranked no. 1 in overall performance for all companies, all evaluations, and also no. 1 by both engineering and purchasing, and by CEMS and distributors.
