Reading time ( words)

Alex Stepinski, founder and vice president of GreenSource, shares his thoughts after his presentation in the managers forum at IPC APEX EXPO. Alex’s presentation focused on the vertical integration trend and zero waste. Alex has been a pioneer in zero waste since he opened Whelen Engineering Company's captive PCB fabrication shop in New Hampshire, a state that has strict regulations about manufacturing waste. Alex spun off GreenSource as a commercial venture two years ago, after visiting 50 factories in 19 countries, and flying over 1 million air miles.
