Just about everyone in the EMC and RF industry has heard about the beginning of AR and Shep’s story where it all began – in the basement with nowhere to go but up! 50 Years is a remarkable milestone, to say the least!
Did you know only about 36 percent of businesses make it to their 10th birthday, and about 21 percent make it to their 20th anniversary, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
“It’s hard enough for most startups to survive the first five years, much less 50 years,” said Robert Morris University management professor Marcel Minutolo. “Making it 50 years is a pretty impressive feat.”
