In Their Words: Hong Kong Printed Circuit Association (HKPCA)


Reading time ( words)

Recently, we sent a questionnaire to a number of printed circuit associations around the world, asking them to tell us a little  about their organizations. With the annual HKPCA & IPC show having just ended, this information provided by HKPCA is especially interesting.

I-Connect007: What is HKPCA’s basic mission?

HKPCA: Our mission and objectives are:

1. To promote and protect the rights and interests of the printed circuit industry

2. To represent the industry and present its views to the government and/or other parties

3. To develop and strengthen internal and external communication, with a view to enhancing cooperation and business opportunities, by means of the following:    

  • Organizing technical/business seminars and recreational functions    
  • Gathering and distributing relevant information to members         
  • Establishing links with overseas counterparts, such as CPCA, JPCA, TPCA, IPC, KPCA, IPCA and EIPC

4. To establish and manage funds for charity purposes.

I-Connect007: What are your membership stats— industry segments, job descriptions, regions of the world, total membership, etc.?

HKPCA: HKPCA has more than 470 members coming from Hong Kong, China and overseas enterprises with total production values reaching around $9.4 billion, occupying 16% of the PCB industry in the world. Member categories include PCB manufacturers, PCB equipment suppliers, suppliers of chemicals and raw materials, and other trade and environment protection service companies. The HKPCA member base will be broadened by recruiting more and more qualified members and with all our efforts to promote China PCB industry to a more prosperous future.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

09/30/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
This week, our five must-reads include the IPC report on the EMS industry and a report on ICs for the automotive market. Add to that Lockheed’s highest powered DoD laser yet, IPC’s APEX keynote announcement, and—for you conference and expo junkies—a calendar of upcoming industry events. I can’t help but notice that much of our news is about, well, something new. In this case, my editor’s picks for the week capture new technology, new perspectives, new ways to communicate content, and new developments that we can expect to see in our future daily life. To borrow a phrase from the TV show “Firefly,” everything is “shiny” this week. I will be at PCB West, the IPC Advanced Packaging symposium, SMTA International, and electronica. If you see me, say hello, and share something cool about the part of the industry you’re in.

Catching Up With John Johnson, New Director of Business Development at ASC

09/28/2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
It’s always good to catch up with old friends, especially when you can start working together. I recently spoke with my friend John Johnson, who has joined American Standard Circuits as the director of business development. At ASC, John will be using the Averatek A-SAP process that he was previously involved with. He shares some of his background and provides insight on the best ways to use this semi-additive PCB fabrication process that opens the capability window for forming trace and space.

It’s officially fall now, and in Atlanta the temperature has plummeted to the mid-80s. We’ve all bumped our air conditioners up to 74 degrees. That means it’s trade show season, and I’ve been busy looking for my suitcase. This week, we have an assortment of news about associations, education, and advocacy, as well as another installment of our Printed Electronics Roundtable. And if you’re looking for a job, you are in luck; our jobConnect007 section is chock-full of open positions at all levels in this industry.
