STI Electronics � Not just another New Facility

Attracting attendees from New Hampshire to Florida and as far away as Ireland, Jim Raby of STI Electronics humbly captured his audience and prepared us for our first ever visit to STI's new facility in Madison, AL.

When Jim Raby, Founder and Technical Director of STI, greeted us after a welcoming dinner, the night before the open house, he spoke with such passion for his company and its achievements, that it captured our attention as we all sat there and watched him intently with raised eyebrows, waiting to hear what he would say next. But it was when he said �It is an honor to have you all here� that I was stunned. I think I can speak for all of us there that the honor felt to be all mine, but I knew Jim meant it, truly. Since Jim founded his company in 1982 it has become his life and passion.

Rather they are quick refreshers designed to be viewed if a specific skill has not been practiced in a while.
