“Each year, Manufacturing Day exemplifies the significant contributions our industry makes nationwide," said IPC President and CEO John Mitchell. “IPC and its member companies have witnessed the strides our industry has made this year and look forward to continued growth for years to come.” 

As part of Manufacturing Day 2016, IPC member company Arc-Tronics Inc. is hosting a site visit for community leaders at their facility in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. Attendees will include: Elk Grove Village Trustees Jim Petri, Sam Lissner and Pat Feicher, along with Dan McManus, district representative for Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (D-IL). 

“We are pleased to host these community leaders in celebration of Manufacturing Day 2016,” said Arc-Tronics President Michael Goeringer. “Manufacturing Day provides us with the opportunity to raise awareness about this great industry that has proven to be an integral part of the economy in Illinois and beyond.” 

Bay Area Circuits, Inc, an IPC member company located in California, is hosting a Manufacturing Day event for the third consecutive year. Attendees, including 30 engineering students from Ohlone College, will tour the facility and get an up close look at some of the latest machine upgrades and innovations in the field. 

“Manufacturing Day has been a great opportunity for us to not only showcase our Silicon Valley operation, but also allows us to connect with engineering students and introduce high technology manufacturing to them as a potential career path,” said Brian Paper, Chief Operating Officer, at Bay Area Circuits. “Our ability to be successful in the long term depends on our ability to attract skilled labor, and this event is helping us accomplish that.”
