The Murray Percival Company, the leading supplier to the Midwest's electronics industry, announces the retirement of Mr. Fred Binggeli, a highly valued team member, and the company’s longest tenured employee.
Fred joined the Murray Percival Company in 1997 and has been an integral part of its growth and success throughout the industry. After working for Alpha Metals/Fry Metals (currently MacDermid Alpha), a company that Murray Percival still proudly represents today, Fred joined the Murray Percival Company and has had an impressive career. In his 22 years supporting the southern Ohio, southern Indiana and northern Kentucky territories, Fred has racked up some impressive stats including 57 trade shows attended, 147 accounts serviced, 480,000+ miles driven (including only two accidents), 1,928 relationships built, and 578 pieces of equipment sold.
“It has been an amazing experience working with an individual with so much class,” commented Murray Percival Jr. “Fred would put our customers first and was always willing to support our employees and principals to find the best solution. Thanks Freddie, you will be greatly missed!”
Everyone at the Murray Percival Co. as well as all members of the Electronics Manufacturing Industry would like to thank Fred for his years of hard work and support. Good luck in your retirement Fred!
Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
It’s easy to frame all our supply chain woes around the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at Screaming Circuits, we started receiving dire warnings about component shortages in early 2018. At that time, we were told that the supply upheaval could last years and that we should expect it to get much worse before it got better. Now, four years later, I would say those warnings nailed it.

Let’s face it, in the past, electronics manufacturing has not been a big business for North America. A majority of electronics are assembled in Asia where supply chains and operating costs offer many economic advantages. In North America, the electronics manufacturing industry has been generally focused on lower volume, high-cost devices, while higher volume products are produced elsewhere. However, the COVID pandemic and various legislation in the U.S. are changing the situation, making electronics manufacturing in North America a more attractive option. How can factories in North America compete for the same type of manufacturing traditionally performed in lower-cost regions?
