A Look Back at Elite's 60th Year

December 19, 2014

With 2014 coming to a close, we’d like to thank everyone who helped make this year a success and look back at some of the changes. We added a new full-time team member, Jake Fanning, who also just completed his CBAP (Certificate in Business Administration) through UIC. We updated and acquired several pieces of equipment and added services to enhance and expedite testing, including;

Elite has also gone through a bit of a marketing facelift with an updated logo, a mobile-optimized website, improved tradeshow booths, corporate video, and several other things here and there in celebration of our 60th year in testing.  We’ve also attended or sponsored several events (see below) that made us appreciate what a great EMC community we are a part of and got to visit with several of you out there viewing this!

Now looking to 2015 and the next 60 years, we already have a few projects in the works.  We are currently in the process of replacing one of our earliest EMI-shielded test chambers (Military/Aerospace Room 11) and plan on having the new-and-improved chamber running early next year.

Finally, Elite couldn’t do any of this without you and we wish you all the best during this holiday season. Please let us know how we can help you achieve continued success in the new year!
