Elmatica announces the appointment of two new board members, former Secretary of State Torkild Hebbert Haukaas and former Senior Director at Cisco Jacob Nordan, to the board of directors.

“I am pleased to welcome our new members of Elmaticas Board of Directors. Hebbert Haukaas and Nordan are two very knowledgeable and experienced candidates with interesting backgrounds, which will be important assets to the board”, says CEO of Elmatica Didrik Bech.

Elmatica has been in the printed circuit board industry since 1971, lately, they have focused on the development of “software” solutions. These solutions are now ready to be commercialized on the global market, which has resulted in a demand for expertise and knowledge to strengthen this strategy.

Impressive Political Career  

“Torkild Hebbert Haukaas has experience from private equity in relation to organizational development, growth strategy, acquisition, finance and commercialization. Hebbert Haukaas political career is equally impressive, despite his young age, holding the position as secretary of state. Jacob Norden is a pioneer in relation to commercializing the technology, digital solutions, and product development”, says Bech.

“I believe these gentlemen combined with our existing board represent a winning combination in regard to the strategy Elmatica has developed, I look forward to working diligently and methodologically with our board of directors,” says Bech.

Investing Tens of Millions

Elmatica has during the last year invested tens of millions in software solutions to digitalize the supply chain of printed circuits, and ultimately allocating resources to better handle, secure and document the purchasing process of PCB.

“Our focus on cloud-based solutions, computer systems, methodology, automation, “digital supply chain” and product development, now permeates all parts of our organization. It is with the gratitude and respect we thank our Board Members who are stepping down, Arild Bakke, Jørgen Bakke and, Geir Hantvedt. Their contributions over the last years, have been invaluable for Elmatica to reach the position it now has,” says Bech.

The Carbon Footprint of HDI: Direct Metallization vs. Electroless Copper

04/14/2022 | Jordan Kologe and Leslie Kim, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
As the electronics supply chain contends with the struggles of moving out of the pandemic and into a new normal, it is increasingly obvious that a new normal will be one with sustainability and resource conservation as the top priority. Over the past year, we have seen printed circuit board manufacturers encounter challenges associated with environmental regulations, water and power outages, and pressures from the supply chain to reduce environmental footprints. From the perspective of a board fabricator, especially one that specializes in HDI, a highly resource-intensive step in the process of making a printed circuit board is the primary metallization step. All circuit boards that have multiple layers go through such a primary metallization, which is either electroless copper or direct metallization (DM).
