Liberty Electronics, Inc. Q2-2018 Newsletter

Hello, there

I hope you are having a good summer so far and things are going well. We've got a lot going at Liberty and thought it would be best to share the latest updates with you on a regular basis. I hope this will be of use to you. If you have any questions or feedback, please don't hesitate to reach out. Also, feel free to share this news with your network as you see fit. Thank you! - Scott Anderson  


The first half of 2018 has been a busy one for Liberty Electronics. In our continual pursuit of excellence, we have been focused on programs, processes, and products that will us achieve that goal. While there are a number of initiatives that merit mention, I'd like to highlight three that stand out. - John L. Dumot   



Companies that do business with the U.S. federal government are required by the  Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Empowerment Act to contract with HUBZone-certified small businesses for at least 3% of federal contracting dollars.  The Small Business Administration (SBA) has designated Venango County Pennsylvania as a qualified HUBZone county. This means that Liberty is eligible to become a HUBZone-certified company which will position us to be able to help our customers and prospective customers meet the 3% requirement.  Many of the companies that we speak with have expressed an interest in placing new business or more business with Liberty in order to gain a dependable cost-effective supplier and meet the federal requirement.  As a result, Liberty is working hard to provide the required information to the SBA in order to achieve the HUBZone certification in the coming months.


Safety Month

safety-month-liberty-electronics-inc-548235-editedSafety Awareness Month is an annual series of events held each June to educate and build awareness in all of us at Liberty about the importance of safety.  From classroom work to Kid’s Day to cake decorating, costume, and children’s coloring contests, the activities are designed to be fun and educational.  Tickets are awarded throughout the month for knowledge of safety and participation in safety-related activities and then drawn for prizes such as kayaks, air conditioners, tools, games, etc.   Our increased safety awareness has been instrumental in driving incidents down and improving the quality of the working environment and productivity here at Liberty.


Liberty-Electronics-laser-cuttingNew Laser Marker

Liberty has purchased a new machine that provides an alternate and improved method for wire and cable marking. Laser marking is a better alternative than either hot stamping or ink jet marking provided the wire insulation or cable jacket is laser-markable.  This new machine gives us the capability to support preferred wire and cable marking in the Aerospace market, and it is qualified to the Boeing marking spec BAC5152.

Marketing Upgrade

In the past quarter, Liberty Electronics launched a major initiative aimed at improving our marketing efforts, primarily through a more established digital presence. These efforts included lauching a newly designed website, implementing marketing automation tools, building a social media presence, and publishing value-add content for audiences. The intent for this initiative was not only to be more relevant in the manufacturing industry, but also to be more data-driven when it comes to sales and marketing efforts. This also means maintaining compliance with regulatory measures such as the EU's recent GDPR guidelines for the collection of user information. We hope that you will connect with us on Twitter and LinkedIn, and subsribe to our new blog, Wired Success.

Our Start

In looking at the array of companies Liberty has been able to serve, we were grateful and humbled to realize that 70% of our top companies have remained with us for more than 10 years. This caused us to look to the story of our start, over three decades ago to reflect on our early years of challenges and triumphs that would build the foundation of our company's character. In a three-part series, we were able to chronicle the birth of our company's innovative spirit, the investment made in our employees, and the level of personal integrity demonstrated by so many that would combine to make Liberty Electronics a true success beyond just profitability. Through interviews and research, local historian, Kelly Anderson Gregg, captures the story of our start.
