It always amazes me the way some new projects come our way.
I was recently contacted by someone who used to manage the company where another engineer I know worked. He contacted the other engineer about creating a product that another company is discontinuing.
As near as we can tell they are stopping production because their sales volume does not justify redesigning the product for ROHS.
The company that contacted us sells 75-100 units per year. As a small manufacturer trying to build our business, we believe it is worth investing NRE (non-recurring engineering costs) at a reduced rate in order to have a new product to add to our current production.
