I worked for HTM in Colorado, it started out as a couple guys in a garage filling a simple niche, when a company needed to expand production for an electronic board. Instead of hiring more people and building more infrastructure for an electronic device that at the time only had an 18 month life before it was obsolete ... we would build it. Then SMTC (Bain) came along promising more business expertise to take the company to the next level by expanding our production into other countries like Mexico. Some of us even went down there to set up their lines and train them, then SMTC shut our still profitable plant down throwing 450 people out of work ... why pay workers $12/hr when you can make more profit with workers at $12/day?
