Sunstone Circuits Appoints Kevin Beattie as Quality Assurance Manager

Reading time ( words)

Sunstone Circuits is pleased to announce the addition of Kevin Beattie to our Sunstone Management team. In his role of Quality Assurance Manager, Beattie’s 25+ year background in printed circuit board manufacturing will be a tremendous asset to the Sunstone team. In addition, he brings valuable experience from his previous roles in the following areas: process engineering, new process introductions, support of nearly every manufacturing process, and extensive knowledge of Continuous Improvement, ISO, IPC and various other industry requirements. Working with production teams and leading the charge in the name of improvement is what he does well.

Beattie is excited to be joining the Sunstone team and relishes the challenge of this new opportunity. “I am truly excited to be joining Team Sunstone and sharing my passion for this industry.  Having worked in PCB manufacturing for more than half of my life, I am extremely eager to join the Sunstone team in drawing on my knowledge and making a difference for a world class organization.  I am ecstatic about the opportunity to lead the quality efforts for a company which is so dedicated to quality and to customers.”

Matt Stevenson, vice president of sales and marketing, “Kevin brings so much energy and experience to the table from his lifelong journey in the PCB industry.  He has already experienced so much in this industry and has positioned himself in a great spot to continue to elevate Sunstone in so many ways.  I am thrilled to have him as a key member of our Sunstone team and look forward to working with him on a daily basis. Sunstone prides itself on its commitment to quality internally and externally and Kevin is the right guy to lead the charge into the future.”

Quality is a daily driver for Sunstone and along with on time delivery is the corner stone of not only our Quality Policy but our overall commitment to customers and design engineers.  Without either of these two areas of focus being at the forefront of every employee, Sunstone would be just another PCB manufacturer and not one that is committed fully to helping innovators innovate and bring technology to market.

Highlights on a Rousing Virtual IPC APEX EXPO 2021

What a week that was! I didn’t get to endure the 11-hour flight each way, neither did I need my comfy old shoes, but it certainly was a marathon event. And real-time-plus-six-hours gave me a few late nights, but it was such a meaningful experience, and well worth the effort!

IPC Supporting Newcomers in the Industry: Notes from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/01/2021 | Marc Carter, Aeromarc
With the wrap-up of IPC APEX EXPO 2021, it was extremely gratifying to note the emphasis placed on getting young people involved to combat the “graying out” knowledge losses facing our industry. A part of that emphasis was reflected in the award ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, which featured some people you may have seen mentioned in my “Better to Light a Candle” columns.
