“So, exactly how old are you?”
Sometimes this is an easy question to answer. Sometimes it isn’t. For MISys Manufacturing, we first started selling our manufacturing software in 1977 when we were based in Massachusetts. Then in 1983 we moved to God’s country and registered our company name in the Green Mountain state of Vermont. We tend to consider that as the beginning of our company, though we were already in the business for 6 years by that time.
So, we are 33 years old by one way of thinking, and 27 by another. We like to think of it as being in business for “over 25 years” and leave it at that. Maybe it makes us all feel a little younger that way.
