  • 13. Step 1: Our class definition of globalization
    the loss of national borders due to increased trade, spread of information technology, cross border financial flow, and culture transfer
  • 14. Step 2: Introductions: John, United States
    John is the president of a company that designs and builds electrical components for original equipment manufacturers, specifically in the appliance and power distribution industry. All of his facilities were once in Chicago and Indiana, but now all of them are located in China. Most of his business is broken into two categories: transformers and actuators.
    The transformer lines are essentially used for sensing current in industrial circuit breaker systems. When a current condition is sensed, this device sends a signal to the circuit breaker to disconnect the power, so the line doesn’t overheat and possibly cause damage or fire.
    The actuators are used in various applications. His company produces some of the drain valve actuators for home dishwashers. They also produce many of the actuators that operate the gas valves in cooking stoves, and they have sensing coils in some of the fire detection systems in commercial buildings. His company’s actuators are also found in many of the circuit breaker panels found in many thousands of homes in North America and Europe.
  • 15. John Armour

  • Introductions: Ronald, China
    Ronald is the sales and marketing manager of a Hong Kong company that builds electrical components for original equipment manufacturers, such as adaptors, transformers, inductors, solenoids & chargers. His company production facilities are located in Canton Province of China with 700 employees.
    The adaptors and transformers are used for the power supply of the electronic appliances and of industrial use (e.g. shaver, mp3, game console, power tool, irrigation systems, control panel, etc.). The Game Boy and PSP power supply are built with his company’s transformers too.
     
    The inductors are used for filtering the electrical noise for different application in the electrical devices. All of the electrical appliances are built with inductors (e.g. TV, computer, music player, DVD player, etc.).
    His company produces solenoids for printers, home dishwashers and gas valves in cooking stoves. His company also produces battery chargers for the NiCad and liquid batteries.
    His company's products are exported to the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Australia, and other places around the world.
