Adafruit is company which designs and makes electronic boards and tutorials about Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Despite of the common believe that to manufacture in USA is expensive and everybody has to move to China, they operate in one of the most expensive place on Earth – New York, USA and prove that to make electronics is possible everywhere, when you have automatic assembly machines it doesn’t much matter if these machines work in China or USA.
I always though that Adafruit is smallish company until I read this article which says they are ranked #11 out of top 20 US Manufacturers!
Same article says Adafruit have 50+ employees and operate in 1500 square meters factory, so they really aren’t so big, so either article is wrong either other US Manufacturers are also small, which makes not much sense with the strong electronics industry in USA. Is the article wrong or I miss something?
EDIT: Vladimir pointed out in the comments that #11 is for NY not USA 🙂 this makes sense!
