iNEMI Recognizes Tetsuro Nishimura for Nihon Superior's Extraordinary Support of iNEMI Activities

(HERNDON, VIRGINIA — November 5, 2009)  – The Board of Directors of the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) has recognized Tetsuro Nishimura, President of Nihon Superior, for his company’s generous support of several iNEMI projects.

In a special presentation, the iNEMI Board cited Nihon Superior’s generosity in providing human resources and testing capabilities, as well as financial support, to several of iNEMI’s lead-free projects. In particular, the company actively supported the Pb-Free Wave Soldering, Pb-Free Rework Optimization, Pb-Free Alloy Alternatives, Pb-Free Early Failures, and Solder Paste Deposition projects.

“The level of commitment Mr. Nishimura demonstrated to these important industry-led efforts, and the level of support Nihon Superior provided under his direction, played a significant role in the success of each project,” said Bill Bader, CEO of iNEMI. “As R&D budgets continue to shrink, these kinds of joint industry efforts will play an increasingly important role. The work of Nihon Superior in supporting the iNEMI collaborative projects is a perfect example of how a company can add value for the benefit of the entire industry.”
