The training lasted two years and there was plenty of content, both in theory and in practice. Now our two apprentices have successfully passed their exams to become machine and plant operators and are ready to enter the profession.
The FED PCB Working Group, an association of industry experts from Germany and Austria, met for its 21st meeting this time at ILFA in Hanover. Exciting topics were on the agenda, such as dealing with UL certifications, annealing recommendations for flex and multi-layer PCBs or the further handling of a joint project on copper layer thicknesses.
For its expansion plans, the Hanover-based PCB producer ILFA relies on the expertise of the respective industry leaders. In the field of wet chemistry and electroplating, the specialist Atotech has now been acquired. The Berlin-based company is one of the world’s leading suppliers of special chemical processes and equipment for the printed circuit board, chip carrier and semiconductor industries and is distinguished by its excellent support and services, among other things.
Leasing a bike is one of our new benefits that ILFA employees can now take advantage of. In order to bring the concept closer and also to be able to present a selection of modern e-bikes, we organised an information day at ILFA at the beginning of June, which was accompanied by our partner BusinessBike and the Hanover-based specialist dealer e-motion.
Sometimes it is not so easy to keep up with our new hires. On 1 June 2022, we at ILFA were once again able to recruit three new colleagues for our production site in Hanover-Anderten. The reinforcement is for our internal sales department and in the production area for the surface technology (OFT) and multilayer departments.
