Interview with Wayne Antal, Key Account Manager NCAB Group USA


Focus in the interview is on supply chain issues.

From the interview:

Now, there are tremendous lead times and a tightening of supplies throughout the industry on what my customers would consider standard components, says Wayne Antal.
