IPC and WHMA Sign Affiliation Agreement WHMA members to receive all IPC-member benefits

Jan 11, 2019

Wire Harness Manufacturer’s Association (WHMA), a trade association representing the cable assembly and wire harness manufacturing industry supply chain, and IPC entered into an affiliation agreement. WHMA’s Board of Directors and membership determined that WHMA’s mission would more effectively be served by an affiliation with IPC which serves the global electronics industry supply chain, including the wire and cable industry vertical.

The IPC Board of Directors also supported the alliance. Per the affiliation agreement, IPC and the WHMA Board will work to grow the involvement of the cable assembly and wire harness industry globally. All current WHMA members become part of IPC’s membership and receive all IPC member benefits including educational, standards development, leadership, advocacy and solutions to industry challenges opportunities.

WHMA will have one voting representative on IPC’s Board of Directors with the WHMA Board of Directors structure remaining. In alignment with IPC’s structures, this group will be known as the WHMA Board. David Bergman, IPC vice president of standards and training, will support the WHMA Board as WHMA’s executive director.

As a global electronics industry association, IPC is honored to be able to bring the strength of its global brand and member services to WHMA,” said IPC president and CEO John Mitchell. “WHMA’s mission is very similar to IPC’s – the two associations exist to help their membership innovate, compete and succeed within the marketplace. We are knowledge providers and we connect our industries with a multitude of networking opportunities. We’re already hard at work to expand the involvement of the wire and cable industry globally in all IPC activities.”

WHMA is thrilled to have signed the affiliation agreement with IPC,” notes Rick Bromm, president of Altex and chairman of the WHMA Board. “Our organizations have been working together for years and now with the agreement in place, WHMA will be able to access the resources of IPC to help WHMA meet our goals to ‘lead, educate and connect’ with companies in the cable and wire harness industry.”
