Fischer Connectors Group’s CEO Jonathan Brossard says: “I’m overjoyed that our efforts to reimagine connectivity are gaining worldwide recognition from our peers in the electronics industry. As experts know, breakthrough innovations are rare beasts in the world of connectors, whose technology hasn’t dramatically changed since the 1950s. In the electronics world, we see breakthroughs every decade or so. That’s why innovation in connectivity is especially important – and duly noticed and rewarded – when it fulfills, as it does here, electronics requirements and trends such as usability, integrability, versatility, wearability, miniaturization, data transmission and the Internet of Things (IoT). I’m very proud of our R&D and cross-functional teams that developed our ground-breaking Fischer Freedom™ technology platform, putting people first and working with our customers to make their lives easier.”
