BANNOCKBURN, IL — IPC bestowed its highest corporate honors on two IPC member companies: TTM Technologies and Continental Automotive.
At IPC Apex Expo last week, the Peter Sarmanian Corporate Recognition Award was presented to TTM Technologies, and the Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award was presented to Continental Automotive.
The Peter Samarian Corporate Recognition award, named for a former IPC board chairman, recognizes an IPC-member company in the PCB industry that has supported IPC through participation in technical and management programs, while providing leadership for the industry.
Nearly 70 of TTM’s staff participate in approximately 120 technical committees, ranging from flexible circuits and fabrication processes to conflict minerals and IP standards. Nearly 1,200 staff have earned CIT, CIS, CID, CID+, and EMS certifications across all TTM locations.
Named for former IPC board chairman and founding member of the IPC Electronics Manufacturing Services Industry Management Council, the IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award honors an IPC-member company in the electronics assembly industry that actively contributes to the industry, while supporting IPC technical and/or management programs.
More than two dozen Continental Automotive employees lend their time and talent on dozens of standards development committees, dedicated to topics ranging from automotive electronics to press-fit technology and lead-free. The company’s staff has amassed more than 400 certifications.
Numerous staff have been honored with awards for their standards contributions; two have earned an IPC Rising Star Award, and Dr. Robert Feuerstein, director and head of manufacturing technology at the Regensberg, Germany facility, serves on IPC’s board.
