Holiday Message from President of the THPCA


Reading time ( words)

First and foremost, on behalf of the Thailand Printed Circuit Association (THPCA), we would like to convey our warmest greetings to all of you. The year 2019 has been marked by noteworthy occasions for the Thailand PCB industry and we have accomplished a significant milestone when we received official certification from the Thai government to acknowledge the THPCA establishment on October 28, 2019.

THPCA was established by Thailand PCB manufacturers who share the common goals and objectives to develop the PCB industry and make the strategic positions in the global supply chain of electronic devices.  Besides, we would like to provide a reliable source and portfolio of PCB market information, technology mapping, implement PCB production standards, in parallel with the cooperation with the global markets and human resource development.

As Thailand is playing an important role in the PCB manufacturing activities in the Southeast Asia region, it is our THPCA mission to strengthen long-term partnership with Thailand and Asian countries as well as develop the global network with WECC through collaborative events and maintaining our momentum and reinforcing the commitment.

THPCA will continue to collaborate closely with WECC members as a close business alliance and move forward to the next episodes of transforming the future of PCB industry together.  We look forward to sharing ideas and initiatives among our team in the year 2020.

Last but not least, in the midst of all the festive seasons, we would like to extend our sincere thankfulness to all WECC members for their collaboration that you have granted to THPCA.  We wish you and your family Happy Holidays and a prosperous new year 2020.

Yours sincerely,

Pitharn Ongkosit, President, Thailand Printed Circuit Association

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.

A Game Plan for Upskilling Your Fab Workforce

05/10/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
There’s been a lot of talk among PCB manufacturers about the need to upskill their workforce. But where do you start—do you set up your own program or send staff to third-party training centers? We asked David Hernandez, IPC vice president of education, to weigh in on this topic, and the criteria that goes into creating IPC training programs. In addition to upskilling strategies, David also delves into the need for our industry to develop a labor pipeline, as well as the challenges we face in hiring, training, and retaining employees in this industry during a tight labor market.

It certainly seems that our times continue to be interesting, don’t they? Just how many different flavors of supply chain disruption can we come up with? Investment on the supply side needs to increase, but the size of the labor force needs to increase even more, if we want to accomplish the task of the buildout itself, let alone running the facilities properly.
