Hunter Welcomes Rep. Mike Honda to CA Facility


Reading time ( words)

Today, Congressman Mike Honda (D-CA-17) met with executives and employees of IPC-member company, Hunter Technology Corp., in Milpitas, California. Hunter Technology provides a full range of electronic design, manufacturing and test services. This visit is part of a nationwide effort to discuss with policymakers legislative and regulatory issues that affect the electronics manufacturing industry.

Among the issues discussed was the Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation (RAMI) Act that recently passed Congress and was signed into law on December 16, 2014. Rep. Honda was a co-sponsor and one of the leading champions of this important legislation that authorizes $400 million to create a National Network for Manufacturing Innovation which would establish a public/private network of regional manufacturing institutes.

“I’d like to thank Rep. Honda for his visit to Hunter Technology today, as well as his steadfast support and leadership to ensure passage of the RAMI Act,” said Joe O’Neil, president and CEO of Hunter Technology and vice chairman of IPC’s Board of Directors. “Rep. Honda has shown his deep appreciation of the manufacturing industry and interest in continuing its success through innovation and collaboration.”

During the visit, Rep. Honda toured the facility and met with staff to discuss the current state of the manufacturing industry and how recent legislative moves will enhance it. “I am grateful to Hunter Technology for their hospitality today,” said Rep. Honda. “It is great to see, first hand, the contributions of the manufacturing industry and the important impact locally, right here in Silicon Valley.”

Rep. Honda’s visit was part of IPC’s “Meet the Policymakers” program, through which IPC government relations staff arrange opportunities for IPC members to host elected officials at company locations. IPC member companies interested in hosting a legislator should contact IPC Vice President of Government Relations John Hasselmann at JohnHasselmann@ipc.org.
