Could there be a more welcome year in recent memory than 2021? If there’s one thing most of us can agree on, it’s that we want 2020 squarely in our rearview mirror as we speed ahead with a fresh, new start. This past year has brought with it much reflection, change and even some consternation.
But it’s also given us an opportunity to examine what’s most valuable in our lives and cling to the promise of a brighter future.
As we look toward 2021, the Editorial Team at I-Connect007 couldn’t be more excited about the focus we’ve chosen for our magazine content. We’ll be introducing and concentrating on the idea of “continuous improvement,” providing valuable insight into the practices and ideas that make you and your businesses successful.
So, stay tuned for an exciting year. Thank you for taking this journey with us!
I-Connect007 Editorial Team
IPC, a global electronics manufacturing industry association, has acquired media company I-Connect007, a global source for news and original content serving the printed circuit design, fabrication and assembly/EMS markets.

I thought the three keynotes given by IPC President and CEO John Mitchell, Industry Week Editor-in-Chief Travis Hessman, and IPC Chief Economist Shawn DuBravac, were spot on. They all spoke to the fact that the way products are conceived, designed, manufactured, and used is changing rapidly. While the keynotes had different focus areas, I noted an important similarity—they all underscored the need for increased industry collaboration to help bring the factory and supply chain of the future to life.
