Sparton Corporation is pleased to announce its third place win at the San Diego IPC Hand Solder World championship by a Viet Nam facility employee, Le Van Linh.
As the regional first place winner representing Viet Nam, Linh competed against 12 other champions representing nine countries. He has been with Sparton since 2012, with deep expertise in hand soldering and post assembly.
This championship win follows Sparton’s recent HR Asia “Best Company to Work for in Asia” award, which is based on employee survey data measuring engagement, motivation and advocacy.
“IPC standards are the electronics industry-adopted standards for design, PCB manufacturing, and electronic assembly. Compliance with these standards is critical for our customers and this award demonstrates Sparton’s commitment to train our team and maintain the highest level of quality of the products we produce,” says Mike Gaul, Group Vice President, MDS. The IPC Hand Soldering competitors were presented with a partially populated soldered assembly and required to remove components, remove old solder, and clean the assembly before evaluation. Following the evaluation, competitors were required to place and solder all required components in a 90-minute time span.
“We are proud of our employees’ hard work and dedication,” says Dung Tran, Managing Director. “These awards are a testament to the value they bring to our company, as well as their dedication to push the boundaries to deliver the highest quality manufacturing.”
