SOUTHAMPTON, U.K. -- In response to growing demand from the defense sector, franchised connector-assembly specialist PEI-Genesis has significantly expanded the MIL-DTL-38999 production capability at its 65,000 ft2 European assembly facility in Southampton. The company is QPL listed by the US Department of Defense for assembling the MIL-DTL-38999 Series I, II and III military circular connectors manufactured by Amphenol. PEI-Genesis also assembles Amphenol MIL-DTL-38999 connectors at its 150,000 ft2 South Bend Indiana USA facility.
Some of the processes involved in assembling these connectors differ from those required for most other connector types, so PEI-Genesis made the decision to build two new assembly lines dedicated to producing fully qualified MIL-DTL-38999 connectors and related products, all of which are offered with PEI’s standard 48-hour assembly service.
“We were able to set up the new assembly lines very rapidly because we had already established a supply-chain partnership with Amphenol,” commented an operations manager at the Southampton facility. “This involves very close collaboration between the two organizations and provides a framework for open communication between personnel at every level.”

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
