IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries® has opened its first office in India. Located in South Bangalore near Electronics City, IPC India, a wholly owned subsidiary of IPC, will be under the leadership of managing director Akshinthala Vijayendra. Vijayendra will initially focus on bringing additional training, conferences and services to India.

“Having Vijay working full time to support the Indian electronics industry’s needs will enable the growth and expansion of IPC certification training,” said David Bergman, IPC vice president of International Relations. Bergman said that certified IPC trainer (CIT) courses and wire harness training (IPC/WHMA-A-620, Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies) are areas that major Indian EMS providers and OEMs have already identified as priority needs.

Over the next few months, Vijayendra will be responsible for hiring critical staff positions to support IPC initiatives, as well as meeting with representatives from local industry to determine what additional services and resources are needed from IPC. In addition, he will continue to coordinate and support the IATC and will look for opportunities to involve local manufacturing operations in IPC global standardization activities.
