Analysts covering the EMS industry have described the 2012 outlook as “uncertain” and “lacking direction”, without any clear, industry-defining trends. Growth forecasts are mixed, echoing the diverse signals Nortech Systems is receiving from its broad customer base. “In the short-term, however, we’re carrying excess capacity that impacts our profitability,” Degen stated. “Strategically, we’ve positioned ourselves for long-term growth through synergistic acquisitions and efficiency improvements.” He added that Nortech remains committed to executing business fundamentals and leveraging its resources prudently in light of customer demand.
