Oct 2017 - Request for 32 year old documentation!

In July we reported here that we had received a request for documentation relating to a VCP-400 controller which was manufactured by us in 1990. In this case we were able to send the customer the documents they required within half an hour of receiving the enquiry. Well last month we received a request from a different customer for information about a PCB we designed and manufactured in 1985 (making the request for documentation relate to something 32 years old). This unit is still in use in the USA. The main drawings for this were done using pencil and paper and took a little while to locate, but within a couple of hours we had scanned in the appropriate drawings and e-mailed the scanned images to our customer.
