ICAPE Group continues to grow by launching its new offices in Lyon (France) that are dedicated to hosting the IDELEC-ICAPE and ICAPE Group structures to provide support for clients in a particularly dynamic location in the electronic industry.
Historically, ICAPE Group has always put its customers’ proximity at the center of its concerns. Therefore, the group has deployed in many countries around the world since 1999: 26 business units have been opened on the European, American, and Asian continents.
Since the acquisition of IDELEC in 2021, ICAPE Group was physically established in the Rhône-Alpes region, a very dynamic location for the European and French electronic industry. Recently, ICAPE Group has occupied a new working space with the opening of a new structure. It brings together the IDELEC-ICAPE team that previously worked in Annecy and a part of ICAPE Group, that previously worked in the headquarters of the Parisian region, to whom the French company spontaneously offered the opportunity to settle down to start a new life, in a CSR approach.
It is in the business center of Lyon, in the third district where the 170 square meters of offices of this new team are located, dedicated to the management, hosting, and visiting clients with increased reactivity and efficiency. As a reminder, ICAPE Group now has 100 employees throughout France.

In my top five picks, we have news about columnist Tara Dunn moving to Averatek to work with their A-SAP additive processes, and an interview with Audrey Sim regarding the “hybrid” model adopted by the HKPCA for its upcoming Electronic Circuits World Convention. We also have a compilation of the questions that readers have asked Joe Fjelstad and news about DownStream Technologies adding support for flex, rigid-flex, and embedded component designs. Finally, we share a review of some of KYZEN’s new training sessions on cleaning electronic assemblies—virtual courses that pack a lot of information into 15-minute snapshots. Knowing how tight everyone’s schedules are now, 15-minute events might be the ticket.

Back to Meriden, the nominal centre of England where the daffodils were blooming. A good crowd made it to the spring seminar that followed the Annual General Meeting of the Institute of Circuit Technology (ICT), with five specialist presentations and excellent opportunities to network with their peers in the industry. Pete Starkey shares his overview of the event.
