New York Times, December 2016:
This article featured in the New York Times discusses how EBW Electronics and other American factories could be affected by Trump’s tough trade talk.
“Pat LeBlanc, the chairman, pointed to a nib of metal on a circuit board. The silicon was extracted at a plant in Minnesota, then processed into a thin wafer at another factory in Massachusetts. The wafer was shipped to China for testing, cut into pieces at another Chinese factory, and then delivered to the Philippines for a chemical process. Then it went back to China to be put onto a reel that can be inserted into soldering machines here in Michigan.
“It literally is a global supply chain,” Mr. LeBlanc said.”
