 Uyemura has been a member since 1995 and has made a large impact on IPC. Nearly a dozen of its staff members are active on approximately 25 technical committees ranging from base materials and fabrication processes to solderability and performance standards. In addition to standards committee participation, Don Walsh, Uyemura’s director of operations, participates on two IPC management councils. He chairs the IPC EXPO Tradeshow Committee and is an active member of the IPC PCB Suppliers Council Steering Committee.        

The IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award was named for former IPC Board Chairman and founding member of the IPC Electronics Manufacturing Services Industry Management Council, the award recognizes an IPC-member company in the electronics assembly industry that has taken the initiative to actively contribute to enhancing the industry while demonstrating support of IPC through participation in technical and/or management programs.

 Honeywell has been an IPC member since 1964. Since that time, the company has devoted many staff members to IPC standards development. Currently, 40 Honeywell employees provide leadership and technical expertise on 50 standards development committees dedicated to topics ranging from design and board fabrication to assembly and supply chain management. And more than 1,600 staff members have earned CIT, CIS, CID, CID+, and EMS certifications across all Honeywell locations.
