CHATSWORTH, Calif., June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - United States Navy personnel had a challenge. A DC/DC converter needed to be manufactured from scratch. The converter powered a nuclear submarine that had to be docked at its San Diego, CA base until a replacement arrived.
The call came to NATEL EMS. The urgency and consequences accompanying this challenge were understood. Similar dilemmas had delayed missions and cost American taxpayers $1 million per day.
"NATEL EMS responded immediately to meet this need," said President/CEO Sudesh Arora.
