Datest Receives 4th Service Excellence Award for Test Laboratory Services

Feb 06, 2020

Datest has been awarded a 2020 Circuits Assembly Service Excellence Award (SEA) for its outstanding customer ratings, as judged by its own customers. Datest was selected for the Test Laboratories category. This is Datest’s fourth Service Excellence Award.

Circuits Assembly Editor-in-Chief, Mike Buetow presented the award to Robert Boguski, Datest’s President, during a Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO.

Sponsored by Circuits Assembly, the SEAs for Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) providers and electronics assembly suppliers honor companies excelling in the crucial area of customer service. The program, now in its 28th year, functions as a way for participants to see how they compare to peers in customer satisfaction.

Mr. Boguski commented about the award, “This is Datest’s fourth Service Excellence Award in five years.  This year, as with previous years, we won on the strength of good words and positive recommendations from a completely new set of customers compared with last year.  Word continues to spread; because of it our customer base continues to grow.  I know I sound like a broken record when I say this, but it’s really true that your reputation precedes you.  Do what you say, with ethics and integrity, and word gets around.  We are once again humbled by this honor.  We don’t take it for granted.”
