EMSNOW Up Close: Eric Miscoll Interviews Dieter Weiss

In this two-part interview, Eric speaks with Dieter Weiss, founder of in4ma, a research firm focused on electronics manufacturing in Europe. Dieter has been surveying European EMS companies every three weeks throughout this crisis. He shares his data-driven insights into what is happening and what is likely to happen in response to the pandemic shutdowns.

In this first section, the two discuss which countries in Europe have now opened their factories, and what supply chain logistics look like right now; what it’s like to fly within Germany; how companies in different countries have protected their workers while managing the economics; what the automotive and medical end market sectors look like and much more. It’s a fascinating insider’s look at European EMS, exclusive to EMSNOW. Part 2 will post Monday.
