Diodes spent $1.8M in Lees Summit buying from vendors and suppliers in 2016. Metro wide they spent upwards of $9M in the Kansas City areain 2016. Diodes offered a large sum of $ for a signing bonus to renew the lease. This company has been manufacturing in its current location for 21 years. The city of Lees Summit should be embarrassed-they are putting 250 people out of work. Hope the citizens remember this at election time.

As unfortunate as it is, they've also caused multiple fires in the summit tech center affecting all the other vendors. Maybe they're not following safety guidelines, but i'm tired of them putting everyone else at risk. They made their bed now they have to lay in it.
Keep pretending Diodes Fabtech was a good company, the truth, it was not. Glad to see them go.
