I think everyone agrees that time flies. It’s already been two years since the last edition of Electronica Munich, the world’s leading international electronics industry trade fair. The 2018 edition is just around the corner and IKOR will have a greater presence than ever. The world’s leading electronics trade fair will host a vast array […]

Additive manufacturing, one of the technologies involved in the Industrial Revolution 4.0, is emphatically stamping its presence on industry as it becomes increasingly simple, intuitive and accessible. This means an increase in capabilities, variety of materials and applications, all of them aimed at innovation, creativity, process improvement and the profitability associated with them. Going beyond […]

While the statistics continue to confirm that relationships are increasingly scarce and that generation after generation their duration tends to decrease, at IKOR we endeavour to contradict the statistics by having increasingly long-lasting “relationships” with our clients. It seems like only yesterday that IKOR took its first steps as an EMS company. But that was […]

Although I am not a particularly enthusiastic follower of the sport, I must admit that I do like football and I was looking forward with a certain amount of impatience to the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the opportunity to see teams from different nations who understand football in different ways, even if many of […]

IKOR_Supply Chain_IoT

Cars that drive themselves, lights that turn on when we enter the room, home appliances which can be activated with your phone… You may not have heard of it, but all these technological advances are part of the increasingly well-known Internet of things (IoT). As we commented in previous posts, the IoT consists of equipping […]

There are bound to be various factors at play when a company experiences strong and continued growth over time. In my opinion, the success stories most likely have three of these in common. The first is the ecosystem that the company is immersed in, and how the company interacts with it. Being surrounded by a […]

Email is a wonderful tool which is essential to our day-to-day work, but are we using it properly? According to the Radicati report on email statistics, we send and receive an average of 127 emails at work every day, a number which keeps on getting bigger. The goal of this post is to get us […]

This year IKOR received an order for a very special piece,…    

How many times has it happened to you that you spend the whole day doing things and at the end of the day you have the feeling that you haven’t done anything useful? And, even worse, do you ever finish the day with more jobs pending than you had to begin with? This is a […]

“And last night, I had another Monica Bellucci dream.  I was in Paris on a case, Monica called and asked me to meet her at a certain cafe. She said she needed to talk to me…” You could buy into this dream, repeated here word for word, but it’s FBI Deputy Director Gordon Cole — […]

During last year’s edition we were able to congratulate and acknowledge each other as true “survivors” along with Gloria Gaynor… unfortunately, this year, due to personal reasons, last night we only managed to make it to the closure of the Jazzaldia and bid farewell to this edition with Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya + Terence Blanchard y Gregory Porter  […]

IKOR_Evolution

Summer is here at last! It’s time to store coats in the wardrobe, get the deckchairs out of the garage and take a walk along the beach any time the weather works in your favour (here in the North you never know). One of my favourite things to do at this time of year is […]

IKOR_Smart Wave

When the first rays of the spring sun arrive, those of us who live in San Sebastian quickly turn our gaze towards the sea, with yearning eyes and a certain dose of anxiety… Because we have the great fortune of being able to grease our cogs with salty water and sand. What kind of grease […]

Guanxi! Let's go together

I like Shanghai. I have visited this city of contrasts several times, where ancient temples coexist with modern skyscrapers, and where Lamborghinis and Porsches share the streets with old souped-up electric bicycles carrying entire families. It is a city that continually surprises and which I encourage you to visit as soon as you get the […]

Pan Jinlian…  it’s been almost a decade since I heard that mysterious name for the first and only time. Suzhou, Jiangsu province, two women lower their voices while they observe the carefree stroll of a young woman along the lake shore. There’s nothing particularly remarkable about her but something strange about her appearance draws everyone’s […]

Objective achieved! A few months ago we told you about obtaining the ISO 13485 Quality Management System certification for the Manufacture of Medical Devices in the IKOR plant in Spain. Now, we are proud to tell you that we have obtained certification for our plant in Mexico. The electro-medical sector is well known for its stringent […]

“Oh no, not I! I will survive! Oh, as long as I know how to love I know I’ll stay alive! And I’ve got all my life to live. And I’ve got all my love to give. And I’ll survive. I will survive! I will survive! July and just like that it’s here again. Summer […]

There is no doubt that the Start-up phenomenon is seeing a lot of coverage in the Spanish media, logical if we analyse the potential of so many young unemployed and their extensive education. The alternative of self-employment is consolidating itself as a way to channel their eagerness to work, and their fresh ideas attract the […]
