It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Arthur W. Cannon on August 7, 2020.

Art Cannon was the Founder of Milwaukee Electronics’ longest and highest performing Sales Rep firm, Cannon Associates. Art was a visionary that built his company to what it is today, with the same team he put into place more than 25 years ago.

In the early days, Art and our Founder & CEO, Mike Stoehr, built a significant book of business. Many of the relationships that resulted from those efforts are still in place today.

Milwaukee Electronics has lost a family member in Art Cannon. His spirit, work ethic and business stories, with his life experience will be remembered fondly by both the Cannon Assoc, and Milwaukee Electronics families. Art has left an indelible mark on our company and we join our partners at Cannon Associates as we endeavor to carry on his legacy.

We take this opportunity to honor Art’s contributions since our relationship began in 1994. More than that, we thank him for creating a partnership that will last long into the future.


Very Sincerely,

The Milwaukee Electronics Family

Milwaukee Electronics is open to support your manufacturing needs.
Including Milwaukee Electronics,Screaming Circuits and San Diego PCB

As July turns into August, we are operating at near full capacity under a new
normal. As you have read over the last several weeks, our living with COVID-
19 has settled into a steady state. Our team certainly recognizes that our new
business environment can change overnight. We continue to monitor our local
health authority advisories and trends to ensure our procedures are updated to
any and all new requirements.

We are now “thriving” rather than merely “surviving”. All necessary safety
protocols are in place to protect our workforce, while our U.S. manufacturing
facilities run at 100% of normal capacity. Our Mexico facility continues to gain
capacity due to both our diligence with the local government, and our
investment in new SMT equipment. Our Screaming Circuits prototype division
is currently at a 98% on-time delivery rate.

Additionally, the electronics supply chain is monitored constantly and we are
happy to share that global demands have started to recover to pre-COVID
levels. Of the lead times we are currently tracking, only 30% of them are
showing a slight increase. As distribution inventory remains healthy, we are
seeing that the current COVID landscape remains healthy as well. Logistics
and air freight capacity from Asia are still challenging, and yet, even this is

All of this to say, that as we continue to navigate through our COVID-19
response, delivering your product, what you want, when you want it,
remains our mission.
