SigmaTron International, Inc., an electronic manufacturing services (EMS) and Pet Tech company, announced that the Company’s Board of Directors has appointed John P. Sheehan as President of EMS Operations, effective January 4, 2023. Mr. Sheehan has been with the Company since September 1986 and has risen through the ranks, most recently holding the position of Vice President, Director of Supply Chain. His experience at SigmaTron has been focused on supply chain, including material procurement and logistics. In addition, he has been involved in business development and customer related activities, IT systems and operations. Through his supply chain activities, he has worked with all seven manufacturing locations. In addition, he has been responsible for the Company’s international purchasing office in Taiwan over the past decade. He holds a BA in Business Accountancy from Northern Illinois University earned in 1982 and subsequently earned his Illinois CPA Certification.

Commenting on the appointment, Mr. Fairhead stated, “I am pleased that John accepted this promotion and agreed to take on the challenge it presents. John and I have worked together since 1986 and he has been intimately involved in the growth of the Company, both organically and through acquisitions. He is very familiar with our internal systems and all of our operations. He is well respected by the management team and has close relationships with several of our key customers. As we have stated repeatedly, the biggest challenge that the Company has faced during the entire pandemic has been supply chain and material issues and John has led the supply chain teams successfully during this period. He has served as an important liaison between suppliers, operations and customers. He is well qualified to be President of the EMS business. Going forward, John will report to me and Terry Anderton, the CEO of Wagz, Inc., will continue to report directly to me as well.”

Commenting on his promotion, Mr. Sheehan stated, “I’m excited about the opportunities we see for the Company and I appreciate the Board’s show of confidence in me. I believe in EMS we have a unique position that will allow us to continue to grow and create value for our shareholders, customers and employees. While the challenges remain for our industry, I believe they are outweighed by the opportunities we see ahead.”

Your Shortage Is Someone Else’s Excess

11/16/2022 | Chintan Sutaria, CalcuQuote
Excess inventory is a ubiquitous issue in the electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry, and it is made worse by the complexity and volatility of the modern supply chain. Considered an unavoidable cost of doing business, unchecked inventory cost has wreaked havoc on manufacturers without strict controls in place to keep their businesses safe. Excess inventory is not only costly for manufacturers themselves, but also for their end customers. Unwillingly, manufacturers are sometimes forced to eat this cost to avoid disrupting relationships with their customers and with the hope of making up the losses in next year’s orders from the customer.
