Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Ivan Castellanos, Technical Services Manager, Latin America, recently hosted the highest-attended SMT Processes Certification course ever, with 34 attendees. Making this accomplishment even more remarkable, this class, taught in Honduras, was delivered with instruction in both English and Spanish. 

Castellanos is SMTA’s primary Spanish-speaking instructor, offering native-language, high-quality instruction to those throughout Central and South America. He has also assisted the SMTA with Spanish translations, and collaborates on ideas for reaching new markets and ways to make the certification program stronger. 

“We are very appreciative of the contributions and support from Ivan and Indium Corporation,” said Jenny Ng, SMTA’s Conference and Education Manager. “Ivan is instrumental in the SMTA Certification Program. He brings many years of experience in the manufacturing industry and expertise in SMT Processes and Six Sigma Green Belt.”

Castellanos supports Indium Corporation’s electronics assembly, semiconductor fabrication and packaging, and thermal management markets. He is based in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, and has more than 15 years of experience in electronics assembly manufacturing, including SMT production troubleshooting. 

Castellanos has a Diploma in Electronics and Communications Engineering and is an SMTA Certified SMT Process Engineer (CSMTPE). He has also earned his Six Sigma Green Belt from Dartmouth College's Thayer School of Engineering. Ivan has worked for several major manufacturing companies, including Jabil Circuits in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
