IPC History

As an association and as an industry, we have many milestones and achievements to celebrate. On these pages, read about the vision of the six printed circuit board manufacturers that came together to create the Institute of Printed Circuits in the fall of 1957. Since that day, IPC has been dedicated to removing supply chain obstacles, creating industry standards, and supporting the advancement of the industry.

No matter what changes lay ahead, the strength of our volunteer leadership and commitment to serve the needs of our membership will continue to be the hallmark of IPC for many years to come.
