Apple CEO Tim Cook Visits CTS

Apple CEO Tim Cook Visits Cincinnati Test Systems

On August 24, Cincinnati Test Systems’ facility in Harrison, Ohio, received a very special visitor. Apple CEO Tim Cook stopped by to meet with employees on the manufacturing floor and to offer thanks for the CTS technology that helped make the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus the world’s first water-resistant smartphones.

“We couldn’t have done it without you,” Cook said in a brief speech during his visit, adding, “You’re a testament to all great things than can happen in this country. This is where we get inspiration to go onto the next thing.”

Cincinnati Test Systems and Apple have been working together since 2014, when the tech giant approached CTS with the task of building the first-ever leak testing system specifically designed for smartphones. To meet this challenge, we developed the MH high-pressure test system, which Apple uses to test iPhones and other smart devices for water resistance.

Cook later tweeted: “Thanks to the team at CTS in Cincinnati, manufacturers of best-in-class testing equipment for Apple.”

Coming from the head of one of the world’s leading technology innovators and manufacturers, that’s high praise indeed.
