Juki Automation Systems� Bob Black Appointed to IPC�s Global Board of Directors

Apr 22, 2008

MORRISVILLE, NC - April 21, 2008 - Juki Corporation, a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and systems, announces that Bob Black Jr., its president and CEO, was appointed as an officer to the IPC�s board of directors.

Black has nearly 35 years of senior executive management experience in the circuit board and semiconductor industries. He was co-founder of Surface Mount Equipment Manufacturers Association (SMEMA) and author of the IPC/SMEMA fiducial mark and mechanical interface standards. While on SMEMA�s board, he worked to merge the association with IPC and helped found the APEX exhibition. Black chairs the IPC SMEMA Steering Committee. He also was the president and co-founder of Zevatech in 1977 and introduced the pick-and-place system at Nepcon West in 1980.

Ten directors and three officers, including new chairman Nilesh Naik, CEO, OneSource Group (Texas), were elected to IPC�s Board for April 2008 through March 2010. For more information about the elections, visit http://www.ipc.org.

Juki Corporation�s experience as the market leader in industrial sewing machines was the stepping-stone for the entry into the printed circuit board assembly market in 1987. Since then, Juki has delivered more than 20,000 automated assembly systems worldwide and is currently shipping an average of 200 assembly machines per month. This extraordinary achievement makes Juki one of the world�s leading providers of automated assembly products and systems. In addition to its core technologies, Juki�s Electronic Assembly and Test Systems Division develops and manufactures advanced electronic systems and computer software for data entry, mail processing and other electronic equipment.

With the purchase of Zevatech�s assets in November 1999, Juki Automation Systems now brings Juki�s reputation for top quality and reliable service also to the North and South American and the European electronics assembly markets. Juki recognizes the challenges of the new century and is prepared to respond to the globalization of electronic manufacturing. With a sophisticated knowledge base, advanced technologies and a high commitment to its customers, Juki is poised for continued growth in the 21st century.
