Manufacturing Day 2016 is a chance to celebrate the industry and inspire the next generation of manufacturers. In celebration of Manufacturing Day 2015, more than 400,000 people attended 1,700 events across the country. Don’t miss the opportunity to join the growing list of companies planning to celebrate this year on October 7, 2016.

IPC member company Zentech Manufacturing Inc. participates annually in Manufacturing Day by hosting local electronics technology students, provides tours of their facility, and has had the highlighted success of a keynote address from Ambassador Michael Froman, United States Trade Representative.

"Zentech is pleased to once again be involved with National Manufacturing Day and we applaud IPC's co-sponsorship of this event. Celebrating and ensuring our existing and future pipeline of skilled workers is critical to maintaining an innovative and productive U.S. economy. Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education is key to developing a workforce matched to the needs of industry. Zentech works closely with nearby colleges and technical schools to promote STEM and give students a view into advanced manufacturing taking place in their own backyards. National Manufacturing Day helps promote these efforts," said Matt Turpin, president and CEO, Zentech Manufacturing, Inc.

If you’re interested, but not sure how to get involved, please view IPC’s Manufacturing Day 2016 website for event ideas, a social media toolkit, and more.

If you have any questions or need assistance with planning your own event, please contact Julie Desisto at JulieDesisto@ipc.org or +1 202-661-8093.

Poor Supply Chain Management Will Cost You Money

04/27/2018 | Stephanie Weaver, Zentech Manufacturing Inc.
Supply chain management goes far beyond merely keeping track of all the SKUs currently on sale. It also means tracking the parts going into the products, since those parts are also potentially going to be used for post-sale support if necessary. If you can't trust your components to be legitimate and trustworthy, backed by a solid chain-of-possession, then every aspect of your electronics operation may be in jeopardy.

Industry 4.0 Concerns

04/27/2018 | Russell Poppe, JJS Manufacturing
