Insulectro Remains Open to Support Fabricators’ Critical Infrastructure Business Demand


Reading time ( words)

As another week of stress and uncertainty, due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, continues for individuals, families, communities, businesses, and our nation, Insulectro continues to place the safety of its teammates in top priority as we remain open to supply our customers’ needs.

To provide a safe working environment to its teammates, vendors, customers, and shipping partners, Insulectro follows the recommendations of state and federal officials especially the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The company has restricted travel and has redeployed office teammates to work from home where possible. Access to facilities is restricted to protect on-site distribution center teammates. The company require social distancing and cleans and disinfects its distribution centers regularly. Those feeling ill are required to stay at home.

The electronics industry is a major player in the battle against COVID-19 and Insulectro’s 11 distribution centers are open to meet the demands of its customers who are engaged in “essential” business as defined by the Department of Homeland Security’s Critical Infrastructure Sectors. Many of Insulectro’s customers create printed circuit boards used in the manufacture of a whole array of military and medical devices including the very critical breathing ventilators that are in short supply. Many of these fabricators are working 24/7 to mitigate crucial shortages.

Insulectro’s supply chain team—experts in matching supply with demand are in constant communication with suppliers to help ensure the rapid movement of PCB materials from manufacture on to avoid bottlenecks and delays in this critical time.

We are all in this together. Insulectro continues to step up its responsibility to deliver the best materials in the fastest way possiblea result of the commitment made by all Insulectro teammates across North America.

Insulectro and its customers are helping to forge the path to the other side of this crisis.

Designing a Sustainable Future

While it may be traditionally considered a PCB fab and assembly show, IPC APEX EXPO is quickly becoming a destination for PCB designers and design engineers. Flipping through this year’s schedule, I counted 15 Professional Development and Technical Conference classes that focus on PCB design, as well as several fabrication classes that many of you should probably take. I checked in with Carlos Plaza, IPC’s senior director of educational development, to discuss the organization’s drive to present more PCB design curriculum at the upcoming show and how the show can give designers the tools they need to overcome the many challenges currently facing the industry.
