During a luncheon at IPC APEX EXPO, the IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award was presented to BAE Systems and the IPC Peter Sarmanian Corporate Recognition Award to Shengyi Technology Co. Ltd.

Named after a former IPC Board Chairman who was a founding member of the Electronics Manufacturing Services Industry Management Council, the Stan Plzak Award recognizes an IPC member company in the electronics assembly industry that has taken the initiative to actively contribute to enhancing the industry while demonstrating support of IPC though participation in technical and/or management programs.

BAE Systems has been a member since 1996 and has made a big impact on IPC.

In addition to standards committee participation, BAE Systems takes IPC training and certification very seriously. The company has more than 3,000 CIT, CIS, CID, CID+, and EMS certifications across all BAE locations.

The IPC Peter Sarmanian Corporate Recognition Award was named for former IPC Board Chairman Peter Sarmanian. This corporate award recognizes an IPC member corporation in the printed board industry that has taken a leadership role and made contributions to the industry while demonstrating support of IPC through participation in technical and/or management programs.

Shengyi Technology Co. Ltd. has been an IPC member since 1995, and since that time, the company has devoted many staff members to IPC standards development.
