IPC Honors Honeywell and Plexus Corp. with Corporate Recognition Awards

Feb 25, 2015

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® bestowed its highest corporate honors to Plexus Corp. and Honeywell. During a luncheon at IPC APEX EXPO®, the IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award was presented to Plexus Corp. and the IPC Peter Sarmanian Corporate Recognition Award to Honeywell.
Named after a former IPC Board Chairman who was a founding member of the Electronics Manufacturing Services Industry Management Council, the Stan Plzak Award recognizes an IPC member company in the electronics assembly industry that has taken the initiative to actively contribute to enhancing the industry while demonstrating support of IPC though participation in technical and/or management programs.

Plexus Corp. has been a member since 1989 and has made a big impact on IPC. More than two dozen of its staff members are active on 50 technical committees ranging from assembly and cleaning and coating to product assurance and printed electronics. In addition to standards committee participation, Plexus Corp. takes IPC training and certification very seriously. The company has more than 2,000 CIT, CIS, CID, CID+, and EMS certifications across all Plexus locations.

The IPC Peter Sarmanian Corporate Recognition Award was named for former IPC Board Chairman Peter Sarmanian. This corporate award recognizes an IPC member corporation in the printed board industry that has taken a leadership role and made contributions to the industry while demonstrating support of IPC through participation in technical and/or management programs.
Honeywell has been an IPC member since 1964 and its Clearwater, Florida location celebrated its 50th year as an IPC member site this past December. Since that time, the company has devoted many staff members to IPC standards development. Currently, 40 Honeywell employees provide leadership and technical expertise on 50 standards development committees dedicated to topics ranging from design and board fabrication to assembly and supply chain management. And more than 1,600 staff members have earned CIT, CIS, CID, CID+, and EMS certifications across all Honeywell locations.

"For many years, both Plexus Corp. and Honeywell have consistently provided staff resources to standards development and other committee initiatives. IPC as an association is privileged to have them in our membership," said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO.
