Discovering Life, Learning and Leadership

Sometimes it is better to be well positioned than to be #1.  While it is important to pursue excellence in all that you do, it is not necessary to be the largest to offer the best value to customers.

Annually, the Manufacturing Market Insider (“MMI”) industry publication lists the world’s Top 50 Electronic Manufacturing Services (“EMS”) providers based on revenues.  The results for 2010 were recently published and I am delighted to say that MMI ranked Creation Technologies as 25th globally (up from 27th a year ago) and 7th in North America.  Wow!

Creation Technologies Global & North American EMS Ranking

At Creation Technologies, we are not the largest company in our sector but are well positioned and are growing rapidly as customers realize that we provide the “solution of choice” for their needs.  While we never want to be #1 (we will leave that for competitors who go after high-volume consumer products), we are thrilled to be so well positioned both globally and in North America.

Over the years, many of us at Creation have grown familiar with the phrase “We are Creation Technologies, a Global Top-50 and North American Top-10 Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider.”  It’s on our website and we use it in many of our presentations.  It’s a powerful sentence that conveys our position and speaks volumes about the amazing growth we have been blessed with over the past 20 years.  Today, I am pleased to say that we can officially change that sentence to read:

“We are Creation Technologies, a Global Top-25 and North American Top-10 Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider.”

I want to thank our customers, suppliers and other business partners for their great support and partnership in this tremendous accomplishment.  Of course, I extend my congratulations and heart-felt appreciation to every member of our Creation family for all their hard work and dedication.  Congratulations!
