Standard of Excellence: Looking Five Years Into the Future

06/19/2024 | Anaya Vardya -- Column: Standard of Excellence
The future of the PCB industry will be based on technology. As components get smaller, denser, and more complicated, PCB fabrication companies must keep up with their customers’ needs both today and in the future. It is no longer enough to just keep up with our customers’ current needs. We must be prepared to meet their PCB needs three to five years out. We need a complete understanding of where our customers are going and what they will need in the near distant future.

American Made Advocacy: Changing Leadership and Three Years of Advocacy in D.C.

06/18/2024 | Travis Kelly -- Column: American Made Advocacy
This month, my term as chair of PCBAA ended, and I turned over those responsibilities to Shane Whiteside, CEO of Summit Interconnect. It has been my honor to serve as chair. From the beginning, when we had only five founding members, to more than 60 today, we have representation from companies and individuals in manufacturing, assembly, and materials. I look forward to working with Shane in his new role and know that PCBAA will benefit from his many years of leadership experience.

Marcy’s Musings: All Things Material 

06/18/2024 | Marcy LaRont -- Column: Marcy's Musings
It wasn’t until I had been around the business block a bit that I truly understood the impact of inventory on one’s P&L. How a company manages its inventory has a tremendous effect on its financials. I saw many situations where “fixers” were hired to get an organization financially back on track. The companies then experienced some of their greatest gains in the first year by simply getting their inventory under control. This is material management at its most base level for a business, and in this June issue of PCB007 Magazine, we are talking about all things “material,” a popular and ever-evolving topic for PCB fabricators.
