Nadcap recognizes SOMACIS for its superior performance and commitment to continual improvement in aerospace quality.
SOMACIS announces that once more it has been awarded Nadcap Merit status for Electronics at its Italian facilities, covering rigid and HDI PCBs. The very first European PCB manufacturer to achieve the Nadcap accreditation, SOMACIS has held the accreditation since 2005.
Having demonstrated ongoing commitment to quality by satisfying customer requirements and industry specifications, the Nadcap Task Group has determined that SOMACIS has earned special recognition. This means that, instead of having their next Nadcap audit in twelve months, SOMACIS has been granted an accreditation that lasts until 2017.

The British Motor Museum in Warwickshire, housing the world's largest collection of historic British cars, was venue for the 2022 Annual Symposium of the Institute of Circuit Technology on June 8, which attracted a substantial gathering of manufacturers and suppliers from the UK printed circuit industry. ICT chair Emma Hudson reflected upon lessons learned during the pandemic lock-down and how the industry has successfully adapted to circumstances. She commented that the UK’s PCB fabricators are extremely busy, as she introduced an outstanding conference programme including a keynote from the incomparable Happy Holden.

Things are heating up in the world of PCB design and manufacturing as well. In the past week, we published quite a bit of news—some good, some not so good. Some of the news is mixed, as we see with the EMS industry shipments rising YOY in April, but falling from the previous month. It’s nice to see NASA investing in American small businesses, but they didn’t really have a choice, did they?
