IPC Government Relations: Focus on Supply Chain Resiliency


Reading time ( words)

During IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego, California, the I-Connect007 Editorial Team met with some of the industry's top executives, managers, and engineers.

During the show, Editor Nolan Johnson sat down with Chris Mitchell, VP of global government affairs, to discuss IPC’s latest initiative with industry intelligence programs. As Chris explains, some of these efforts are focused on improving the DoD’s supply chain. This includes moving the DoD from leaded to lead-free components to help avoid millions of dollars in rework. He also discusses the team’s drive to unite with partners around the world and create a truly global organization.

IPC APEX EXPO is the largest PCB industry event in North America. The next IPC APEX EXPO will be held January 26-28, 2021, at the San Diego Convention Center.
