Flex and rigid flex circuit board manufacturer, Printed Circuits has started 2018 with a few enhancements to their wet processing department, starting with the appointment of Paul Peters to engineering manager of their plating and wet processing departments.

“Paul Peters brings a wealth of wet processing talent and experience to Printed Circuits. We are delighted to have his skill set added to our engineering talent,” said Ken Tannehill, president and CEO. Paul has 39 years experience in wet processing in the PWB manufacturing industry and has worked with industry leaders MacDermid, OMG, and Electrochemicals, as well as Printed Circuits in previous positions.

“The timing of Paul’s hire was ideal as we have just added electroplated platinum to our final finish capabilities,” said Matt Tannehill, executive vice president. “Electroplated platinum is desirable as a final finish when folks are looking to use flexible circuits in implantable devices for medical applications,” Matt continued. “It is ideal when electrodes or circuits will come into contact with human tissue or fluids, which is typical in implantable medical electronics applications that are growing in popularity.”
