Hometowm Company Makes Good
I’ve always been fond of companies from my hometown. I was born in Santa Cruz, CA and lived in and around that area for a good chunk of my life. I almost never read/hear about companies from that area, though, given it’s not exactly a hotbed of activity. While you wouldn’t know most of the companies in Santa Cruz unless you yourself lived there, Plantronics is definitely a company that many people outside of Santa Cruz have heard of. In case you haven’t, they make some of the best-quality telephone headsets around. I myself use the Plantronics CS-50 and I love it.
Om recently wrote a blog piece detailing their acquisition of Altec Lansing and what it means for the company. Nice to see a hometown being successful and growing!
