BANNOCKBURN, Ill., April 3, 2007 - IPC - Association Connecting Electronics Industries® has awarded certification to CTS Corporation's Moorpark facility, under IPC's Certification for Lead Free Electronics Assembly Process Capability Program. CTS is a leading provider of electronics manufacturing services (EMS) worldwide.

Jim McNeil, CTS' director of engineering and quality, said of the achievement, "IPC certification is an important milestone for CTS as we meet the growing tide of demand for RoHS-compliant products and services worldwide. Our customers rely on us to provide leading-edge products and processes so it is critical that we continue to invest in our global operations to meet their expectations."

"By successfully completing IPC's certification program, CTS Corporation has realized multiple goals, including validating their lead free processes, demonstrating those capabilities to their customers, and improving their existing lead free processes using constructive auditor feedback," said John Kania, IPC director of assembly industry programs.

The IPC Certification for Lead Free Electronics Assembly Process Capability is an audit of an electronics assembly facility - whether it's an OEM or EMS facility - to determine if the facility is capable of producing product to meet the lead free requirements of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive. The audit is not designed to ensure that a facility will produce RoHS lead free compliant products. The certification program is an excellent way for a facility to validate its lead free electronics assembly process capabilities and to impress upon its customers and suppliers its commitment to excellence.
