StratEdge Reports A Strong Third Quarter
Attributed to early COVID-19 preparedness planning, participation in virtual events, and 5G infrastructure build-out
Santee, Calif. – 21 September 2020 – StratEdge Corporation, leader in the design, production, and assembly of high-frequency and high-power semiconductor packages for microwave, millimeter-wave, and high-speed digital devices, announces a strong third quarter with a marked increase recently in requests for 5G-related quotes and contract orders when compared to the rest of the entire year. Ms. Marty Daniel, account manager at StratEdge, elaborates on the surge StratEdge is seeing for the 5G infrastructure build-out and how it relates to early COVID-19 preparedness planning while in an interview for a recent virtual event.
As an essential business, the management team at StratEdge began implementing immediate protections for COVID-19 preparedness at its new high-tech facility with ramped up assembly lines and Class 100 manufacturing area. One of the chemists on staff created a formula for making their own in-house hand sanitizer when supplies were hard to find. Several other staff members and their partners created extra masks for the manufacturing technicians and employees to wear. In addition to the masks and hand sanitizer, StratEdge also suspended all international and domestic travel for its employees as an added precaution.
"While sales and customer service processes have changed globally," said Ms. Marty Daniel, "some customers have security protocols in place that can make communicating over public platforms very difficult. At StratEdge, we believe being flexible and accommodating is important in providing customers with total satisfaction."
StratEdge's management team recognized the changing needs and deployed Microsoft Teams early this year in anticipation of expanded needs. "That greatly improved our ability to meet with customers and key research and development staff members to discuss ongoing projects, including a rise in the 5G infrastructure build-out projects," Ms. Daniel added.
