Congresswoman Sinema Tours Isola

As part of IPC’s ongoing efforts to connect companies with Capitol Hill representatives, Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema (AZ-9) visited Isola’s manufacturing and R&D facilities in Chandler, Arizona on Friday, January 3. Sinema visited the facility to learn about the issues that concern the developer and manufacturer of materials used to fabricate advanced printed circuit boards.

For many years, my father worked at Raytheon, so I know very well how the interests of a manufacturer affects the livelihood of every one of its employees and their families,” said Sinema. “I look forward to working with IPC and learning how I can help my constituents make a difference in the manufacture of electronic products that impact all our lives.”

In addition to providing a tour of the facilities, Isola’s CEO, Ray Sharpe, provided Rep. Sinema with an executive briefing on such issues as export controls, R&D tax credits and intellectual property protection — all high priority items on the company’s ‘s list of concerns.
“Isola was delighted to give Representative Sinema a tour of our R&D and manufacturing facilities,” said Sharpe. “It is critically important for manufacturers and their suppliers to engage with those in Washington who are setting policy, and I am grateful that IPC was able to help us make this visit happen.”

IPC member companies that are interested in coordinating a visit with their legislators or representatives should contact IPC Vice President of Government Relations John Hasselmann.
