What a rush to work for and help build a company that is dedicated to it's people and to it's customers. We had a great product line that was priced correctly and in demand by our customers, and we all worked very hard to maintain our relationships with our customers. Great growth, but product quality suffered a little bit due to the high customer demand, and the desire to get the product out the door.
Purchased in 2003 by Cobham, and operated mostly "hands-off" until 2006/2007 when they began to exert more financial controls. I don't really think they knew what to do with us, as 99% of Cobham's business was defense-related, and Sea Tel was probably 99% commercial.
Cobham instituted an upper management change in 2008, bringing in their own people for the higher positions. The commercial market pretty much tanked in the next couple of years, but as I was no longer involved with Sea Tel, I will leave the later reviews to others.
