IPC bestowed its highest corporate honors on two member companies, Rockwell Collins and Northrop Grumman Corporation. During a luncheon at IPC APEX EXPO 2018, the Peter Sarmanian Corporate Recognition Award was presented to Northrop Grumman and the Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award was presented to Rockwell Collins.

The Peter Samarian Corporate Recognition award, named for a former IPC Board Chairman, recognizes an IPC-member company in the printed board industry that has supported IPC through participation in technical and management programs while providing leadership for the industry.

Northrop Grumman, an IPC member since 1962, has long held a leadership role in IPC, participating in meetings for decades, making a significant impact on both IPC and the industry. More than 50 of its staff members are active on approximately 120 technical committees ranging from flexible circuits and fabrication processes to conflict minerals and intellectual property standards. Almost 1,000 Northrop Grumman employees have earned CIT, CIS, CID, CID+ and EMS certifications across all Northrop Grumman locations.

Named for former IPC Board Chairman and founding member of the IPC Electronics Manufacturing Services Industry Management Council, the IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award honors an IPC-member company in the electronics assembly industry that actively contributes to the industry while supporting IPC technical and/or management programs.

Rockwell Collins has been a member of IPC since 1965, and has devoted many staff members to IPC standards development. Nearly 40 Rockwell Collins employees provide leadership and technical expertise on more than 100 standards development committees dedicated to topics such as assembly and joining, electronic documentation and e-textiles. More than 250 staff members have earned CIT, CIS, CID, CID+, and EMS certification across all Rockwell locations.

“We are privileged to have Northrop Grumman and Rockwell Collins as members of IPC,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “Their decades of leadership, commitment to providing staff resources to standards development, and engagement in IPC education and event activities, have contributed to IPC’s global growth in the electronics industry.”
