Cascade Systems CEO, Shantanu Gupta Featured in the Portland Business Journal
The most recent issue of the Portland Business Journal featured a profile of Shantanu Gupta, the CEO of Cascade Systems Technology. When he took over the company back in November of 2019, he had some ambitious goals for 2020 that were soon derailed by the arrival of COVID-19 on the world stage.
The global pandemic disrupted the current global supply chains and created tremendous challenges for anyone associated with the manufacturing of electronic devices in the U.S.
COVID-19 Challenges also Create Opportunity
Mr. Gupta’s 28 years of experience with Intel allowed him to not see the pandemic as an obstacle, but as an opportunity. Because of the tremendous impact of the Coronavirus to Chinese electronic components’ suppliers, it opened up the door to increased revenue in the near future as U.S. electronic companies look for local manufacturing companies to produce circuit boards for their electronics.
The pandemic has increased demand for electronic devices that supports all aspects of cloud computing including online shopping, remote connectivity for workers, video conferencing, and even circuit boards for medical devices.
Cascade Adapts to COVID-19
Gupta and Cascade’s 35 employees adapted to the new environment to keep production moving through the use of masks, remote meetings, and social distancing in the Hillsboro facility. As an essential business, Cascade supplies the printed circuit board assemblies that power the electronics that are so critical to the economy right now.
The future is very bright for Cascade Systems Technology. As companies cancel orders from (and trips to) China, they are seeking domestic electronic contract manufacturers who can supply the printed circuit boards so critical to their operations now and well into the future.
