The Ground Floor: Ascentron, On The Way Up

The technology sector of the economy is about ideas; cool new things that can make the world a better place.  But after the ideas, somebody's got to make the stuff. 

And that's where Ascentron, based in White City, comes in.  The company manufactures a variety of items, from printed circuit boards to complete assemblies, for industries ranging from medical to military. 

And the company managed to survive the recession of several years ago. 

This month's edition of The Ground Floor, our business segment, focuses on Ascentron and its ascent (sorry).  David Hollingsworth, co-founder/co-owner/VP of Business Development, is our guest.
