At the end of last week, Matt Bolton (SparkFun’s Director of Production) sent out an exciting email - his team in production had just put the finishing touches on SparkFun’s 3 millionth widget! This is a pretty exciting milestone for us as a company and we have to take a moment to say “Thank You!” to all our amazing customers who helped us get to this point - without your incredible inventiveness, we wouldn’t be the company we are today!
Here is Matt giving a short speech to his team:
It took us a bit over eight years as a company to get to the 1 million mark, but only two years to go from 1 to 3 million - pretty crazy stuff. In case you are wondering, the 3 millionth widget was an Arduino Pro Mini.
The SparkFun Production Crew, rocking their “soldering wizard” shirts, celebrating the 3,000,000th.
To honor this momentous occasion, we are going to put a Pro Mini in 50 random orders this week. So if you’re placing an order in the next few days, there’s a chance you’ll get a free Pro Mini thrown in!
Thank you again, from the bottom of our geeky little hearts!
