We wanted to bring you a new way to experience the hardware roundup this month. Our latest edition of the roundup includes a teaser video hosted by the Head of Program Management on our manufacturing team, Sean!
Sean is a hardware enthusiast, and he'll guide you through trends in global manufacturing, innovative hardware design, and advanced robotic technology.
Changes in Wisconsin’s Foxconn deal can teach us a lesson on supply chain diversification and on making local manufacturing accessible to the international supply chain. + A sample of where manufacturing growth is continuing in the U.S.
Appliance giant Haier revitalized General Electric Appliances after acquiring them, by developing a new microenterprise structure to create “zero distance” to the customer.
