STI Electronics, Inc., a full service organization providing training services, training materials, analytical/failure analysis, prototyping, and small-to-medium volume contract PCB assembly, today announced the retirement of Mel Parrish.

After more than 15 years of dedicated service to STI Electronics, Mel Parrish, Director of Training Materials, will officially retire on July 7, 2016. After retiring from the Air Force as an Electronics Curriculum Designer, Parrish began working in standards development and training while working for the Navy at China Lake during the generation of WS6536 through MIL-STD-2000. Parrish later went on to the Electronics Manufacturing Productivity Facility (EMPF) in Indianapolis, Indiana before joining STI in 2000.   
 
Parrish has held a variety of leadership positions at STI culminating with his position as Director of Training Materials. As a collateral duty, he also served as the Facility Security Officer (FSO). Parrish has been a major contributor to the IPC and is a Technical Activities Executive Committee (TAEC) lifetime member.

Obviously, I have mixed emotions about Mel’s retirement,” said David Raby, President/CEO. “On the one hand, Mel has been a vital part of our organization for many years and will be missed. On the other hand, I’m happy that Mel will now be able to focus on the things that are most important to him…family and hobbies.”


Since 1982, STI Electronics, Inc. (STI) has been the premier full service organization for training, consulting, laboratory analysis, prototyping, and small-to-medium volume contract PCB assembly in the electronics industry. STI also produces a complete line of solder training kits and training support products. For more information, visit www.stielectronicsinc.com.
