In the spirit of full disclosure, we will be discussing and sharing photos, slides, and materials with permission from both ASC and Averatek. is is the first of a three-part interview. Steve Williams: Welcome John, good to see you again. John Johnson: ank you, Steve. It's my plea- sure. I'm always looking for opportunities to talk about UHDI and the A-SAP process.

So, it's an Averatek semi-additive process they've developed for the electronics industry, pre- dominantly circuit boards. Very good. You've had a lot of leadership positions in the industry, but before American Standard, you worked at Averatek. Tell me about that. I was the vice president of sales and customer support and, predominantly, my role was working with the licensees to get them up and running, to bring product realization to the forefront with them.
