Adaptec, Inc. -- Company History

These interfaces allow data to move quickly between different computer types and allow computers to communicate with peripheral devices such as printers, scanners, disk drives, tape drives, CD-ROM drives and others. Adaptec also manufactures other technology in the general Adaptec 1995 of data movement, including advanced networking equipment and software. The firm maintains headquarters in Silicon Valley, in the town of Milpitas, California, with regional offices Adaptec 1995 Japan and Belgium. Adaptec does not own its own manufacturing facilities, but subcontracts through vendors in Taiwan, Singapore, and elsewhere. Beginnings in the s Adaptec was the brainchild of Laurence Boucher.


Boucher had been a computer engineer at a company called Shugart Associates and at leading computer maker IBM. Inat the age of 37, he left IBM to start his own company. As small computers began to get more powerful, Boucher saw a need for technology that would let them swap data with mainframe computers and other devices more quickly. Eric J. Adaptec's technology made quick, flexible communication links between computers and their so-called peripheral devices, meaning printers, exterior drives, and other components that might be linked up to Adaptec 1995 computer. Boucher had found a niche for a viable product, and Adaptec grew quickly.

Management, sales, and distribution were run Adaptec 1995 of headquarters in Milpitas, California, while manufacturing and assembly of Adaptec's semiconductor chips and circuit boards were subcontracted out to factories in Singapore. The company ballooned, finding many customers among other start-up computer companies who appreciated Adaptec's cutting-edge technology. Yet this initial spurt of growth was not well managed; soon, Adaptec ran into serious financial problems. As the company was just establishing its reputation, it took all the customers it could get to achieve enough sales volume to keep going.

As a result, Adaptec ended up pooling most of its sales among three companies. As these were all new ventures, and not particularly stable, this was not a wise strategy.

During one disastrous quarter ofall three of the companies that represented Adaptec's biggest customers ran into difficulties and decided to cancel their orders. Losing these three customers meant Adaptec 1995 half of Adaptec's sales went down the drain. When things had been going well, the company had been casually managed, and it did not seem to matter.


But in this crisis, it was clear that Adaptec needed to adopt some basic controls. The company had not been verifying shipments against purchase orders, and it was receiving parts it did not want and running short on essentials. Company Adaptec 1995 by Laurence Boucher. Adaptec 1995
