IPC Honors TTM Technologies, Inc. and Continental Automotive with Corporate Recognition Awards


Reading time ( words)

IPC bestowed its highest corporate honors on two IPC member companies, TTM Technologies, Inc. and Continental Automotive. During a luncheon at IPC APEX EXPO 2020, the Peter Sarmanian Corporate Recognition Award was presented to TTM Technologies, Inc. and the Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award was presented to Continental Automotive.

The Peter Samarian Corporate Recognition award, named for a former IPC Board Chairman, recognizes an IPC-member company in the printed board industry (PCB) that has supported IPC through participation in technical and management programs while providing leadership for the industry.

Members of IPC since 1976, TTM Technologies, Inc. is a leading global PCB manufacturer, focusing on quick-turn and volume production of technologically advanced PCBs, backplane assemblies and electro-mechanical solutions.

Nearly 70 of its staff members participate in approximately 120 technical committees ranging from flexible circuits and fabrication processes to conflict minerals and intellectual property standards. And nearly 1,200 staff members have earned CIT, CIS, CID, CID+, and EMS certifications across all TTM locations. Active in IPC’s “Meet the Policy Makers” program, TTM locations in the U.S. have played host to seven U.S. policymakers to discuss issues critical to the industry. In addition, TTM President and CEO Tom Edman is a vigorous contributor to IPC’s North American government relations committee and currently serves on IPC’s board of directors.

Named for former IPC Board Chairman and founding member of the IPC Electronics Manufacturing Services Industry Management Council, the IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award honors an IPC-member company in the electronics assembly industry that actively contributes to the industry while supporting IPC technical and/or management programs.

A member company since 1995, more than two dozen Continental Automotive employees lend their time and talent on dozens of standards development committees, dedicated to topics ranging from automotive electronics to press-fit technology and lead-free. Staff also take their expertise outside of standards development and have presented at numerous IPC workshops and conferences. When they’re not helping educate the industry, they’re in IPC’s virtual classroom where they have amassed more than 400 staff certifications.

Numerous staff have been honored with awards for their standards contributions, two have earned an IPC Rising Star Award, and Dr. Robert Feuerstein, director and head of manufacturing technology at the Regensberg, Germany facility, serves on IPC’s board.

“We are privileged to have TTM Technologies, Inc. and Continental Automotive as members of IPC,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “We benefit tremendously from their leadership, knowledge and expertise. Their involvement in IPC has directly contributed to IPC’s global growth in the electronics industry.”
