IPC Opens India Office and Electronics Manufacturing Training Facility

Sep 26, 2010

BANNOCKBURN, IL - Extending its training and knowledge-based resources and services to Indian electronics manufacturing facilities on a local level, IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® has opened its first office in India. Located in South Bangalore, close to the well-known Electronics City, IPC India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of IPC, will be under the leadership of Managing Director Mr. Akshinthala Vijayendra.

The initial focus of Vijayendra’s activities will be on bringing additional training, conferences and services to India. For three years, IPC and the Indian Printed Circuits Association (IPCA) have worked cooperatively on the Industry Association Training Center (IATC).

“Having Vijay working full-time to support the Indian electronics industry needs will enable the growth and expansion of IPC certification training,” says David Bergman, IPC vice president of international relations. As Bergman explains, certified IPC trainer (CIT) courses as well as wire harness training (IPC/WHMA-A-620, Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies) are areas that major Indian EMS providers and OEMs have already identified as priority needs.

Over the next few months, Vijayendra will be responsible for hiring critical staff positions to support IPC initiatives in addition to meeting with representatives from local industry to determine what additional services and resources are needed from IPC. He will also continue to coordinate and support the IATC and will look for opportunities to involve local manufacturing operations in IPC global standardization activities.

Vijayendra has more than 35 years of experience in printed circuit design, fabrication & electronics production, of which 20 years are in the development of electro-static discharge (ESD) products and in ESD audit & training fields. In addition, he is Master IPC Trainer (MIT) for several global industry standards, including IPC-A-600, Acceptability of Printed Boards; IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies; and IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies.

“Vijay has been instrumental in bringing IPC training programs to the manufacturing industry in India. IPC is fortunate to have a respected leader heading up its team in India,” adds Bergman.

The IPC India office is located at #728, 10th Main, 4th Block Jayanagar, Bangalore 560011. Vijay can be reached at +91 (0)80-41570637, +91 9845030634 or IPCIndia@ipc.org.

IPC (www.IPC.org) is a global trade association based in Bannockburn, Ill., dedicated to the competitive excellence and financial success of its 2,700 member companies which represent all facets of the electronics industry, including design, printed board manufacturing, electronics assembly and test.
