Wow, 6 years ago I posted a factory tour of Electro-Harmonix. Yesterday, I saw a recent tour with Sweetwater and I thought it was very interesting to see the process changes from then to now. Owner, Mike Matthews is his same self, which was also good to see.
Items I thought were personally interesting – the factory is now completely handles assembly only. No boards are soldered in mass, etc. I didn’t see any silkscreening of enclosures as the previous tour. I was blown away by the sheer size of the building and the amount of employees there. And finally, I thought it was great that Mike seemed to know the names of all the individuals on the shop floor. I feel that is very important, and that was great to see.
