IPC Congratulates Rep. Paul Ryan on Election to Speaker of the House of Representatives


Reading time ( words)

On behalf of IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries and the estimated 800,000 people employed in our 2,200 U.S. member facilities, we congratulate Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) on his election to the position of Speaker of the House of Representatives. 

During his time in the House, Speaker Ryan has proven himself to be an effective leader of the House Committee on Ways and Means and an informed supporter of the electronics manufacturing industry. Just last month, at IPC’s invitation, he took time from his busy schedule to visit with employees of IPC-member company Creation Technologies, an electronics manufacturing services provider, at the company's manufacturing facility in Oak Creek, Wisc. to discuss key policy issues for Creation Technologies and the industry as a whole.

As Speaker Ryan and his colleagues begin a new era in national leadership, IPC members urge them to remember that a healthy electronics manufacturing industry is critical to the economy and national security of the United States. We call on Speaker Ryan to continue supporting public policies that drive technological innovation and advanced manufacturing; promote a 21st century economy and workforce; enable smart regulation; and support science-based environmental protection.

Ventec: Contextualizing the CHIPS Act

01/05/2023 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson hears from Alun Morgan, Technology Ambassador at Ventec, and Mark Goodwin, Ventec’s COO, about the benefits and risks posed by new PCB-oriented legislation in the U.S. and Europe. Faced with a rapidly consolidating industry, especially in the face of mounting pressure from the Russia-fueled energy crisis, government intervention is a welcome prospect—as long as legislators are committed to addressing the full scope of the issue, including the supply chain’s migration to Asia. Ventec is hopeful that, having been called on to educate government officials on the challenges facing the industry, they will help spur future legislative changes that will protect and grow the industry’s interests.
