Reading time ( words)

IPC bestowed its highest corporate honors on two IPC member companies, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Naval Service Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane. During a luncheon at IPC APEX EXPO 2019, the Peter Sarmanian Corporate Recognition Award was presented to NSWC Crane and the Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award was presented to the NASA.

The Peter Samarian Corporate Recognition award, named for a former IPC Board Chairman, recognizes an IPC-member company in the printed board industry that has supported IPC through participation in technical and management programs while providing leadership for the industry.

Members of IPC since 1985, NWSC Crane is one of Indiana’s largest high-tech employers with over 2,000 scientists, engineers and technicians. Located in Crane, Indiana, NSWC Crane is a shore command of the U.S. Navy. They provide the majority of the DoD's technical expertise supporting IPC standard development and maintenance related to printed boards and electronics assembly as well as serving as the oversight facility for the U.S. Navy's role as executive agent for printed circuit board technology.

IPC recognizes NSWC Crane’s legacy of engagement in technical standards as well as the value that NSWC Crane and the Department of Defense place on industry collaborations and the essential value of technical standards in supporting defense acquisition requirements.

Named for former IPC Board Chairman and founding member of the IPC Electronics Manufacturing Services Industry Management Council, the IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award honors an IPC-member company in the electronics assembly industry that actively contributes to the industry while supporting IPC technical and/or management programs.

NASA and its research, space and flight centers have been members of IPC since 1995. NASA is an independent agency of the United States Federal Government responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and aerospace research. Currently, more than three dozen NASA employees provide leadership and technical expertise on nearly 50 standards development committees on topics ranging from assembly and joining and wire harness design to space electronic assemblies and intellectual properties. Nearly 500 NASA staff members have earned CIT, CIS, CID, CID+, and EMS certifications across all NASA entities.

“We are privileged to have NWSC Crane and NASA Flight Centers as members of IPC,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “We benefit tremendously from their leadership, knowledge and expertise. Their involvement in IPC has directly contributed to IPC’s global growth in the electronics industry.”
