<strong>PERFORMANCE ON THE LINE: ACKNOWLEDGED AND AWARDED BY INFINEON</strong>
When a storied semiconductor manufacturer confers an award for “the most stable services provided with no interrupt to production on a low-cost basis,” there’s reason to take note. Such is the case with the 2018 Infineon Supplier Award, granted to Kinetics by the 40,100-employee German company.
