Bay Area Circuits, Inc. hosted a Manufacturing Day event on Friday, October 6th for the fourth consecutive year. The company opened its doors to give college engineering students a tour of its printed circuit board manufacturing operations and a look at the latest equipment upgrades and technological advancements in the industry.

“Manufacturing Day continues to be an opportunity for us to connect with engineering students and introduce high technology manufacturing to them as a viable career path,” said Brian Paper, Chief Operating Officer, at Bay Area Circuits. “As an industry, our long term success depends on our ability to attract skilled labor, and this event allows us to challenge their old-school perceptions of manufacturing.”

This year, Bay Area Circuits hosted 30 engineering students from Ohlone College, located in Fremont, CA. Students received a first-hand look at the printed circuit board manufacturing process, including the ingredients which have enabled the company to set the standard for quick-turn PCB prototype manufacturing.

In fact, there was even some sunshine later in the day!
