Reading time ( words)

Unitech Printed Circuit Board has suspended part of the operations at its plant in Yilan, northeastern Taiwan, in the wake of a fatal accident there, according to a Digitimes report. Four Unitech employees died after falling into a wastewater pool during maintenance work at the Yilan plant on June 26.

According to the report, government investigators have sealed off the pool, which supports the plant wet processing. Unitech said wet processing at the plant has been suspended, and wet processing will be handled by its plant in Yucheng, northern Taiwan, in the meantime. The company said the dry process at the Yilan plant remains operational.

Ray Pritchard Looks Back at IPC’s Beginning and His Role in Getting it Started

03/24/2017 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
I have known Ray Pritchard for a long time—as long as I’ve been involved with IPC, in fact. He directed the organization for 35 years before turning over the reins. One could say he grew up with the organization—or vice versa. Ray was always a bundle of energy and still is, still joking and warm, a great people person, and I am sure he had a little something to do with the spirit of camaraderie and cooperation that is the hallmark of the IPC we know today.
