Congressman Sam Johnson Tours Creation Technologies in Texas

Visit Co-Hosted by IPC as Part of Effort to Connect Electronics Manufacturers with Policymakers

Congressman Sam Johnson (R-TX-3) met with executives and employees of IPC-member company Creation Technologies at the company’s manufacturing facility in Plano, Texas on August 13. Coordinated by IPC, the world’s leading association for electronics manufacturing companies, this visit is part of a nationwide effort to educate policymakers about legislative and regulatory issues that affect the electronics manufacturing industry.

“I am grateful to Creation Technologies and IPC for hosting me at today’s tour,” said Rep. Johnson. “It is great to get the opportunity to see, firsthand, the contributions of the high-tech manufacturing industry to Texas’s economy. Plano is lucky to have such a great company in our own backyard – and with Texas being ranked the #1 state to do business, it’s easy to see why they came here! Washington should take a cue from Texas and Creation Technologies!”

With facilities across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and China, Creation Technologies has decades of experience designing, manufacturing, and providing customized supply chain solutions to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) around the world. The company’s Plano facility General Manager, Scott D. Hitt, hosted the site visit and led discussions on issues including fostering innovation, emerging markets, and regulatory compliance.

“On behalf of both Creation Technologies and IPC, I want to thank Congressman Johnson for taking the time to visit our manufacturing facilities today,” said Hitt. “We appreciate his interest in learning directly from people on the front lines of our industry to learn how we make our customers successful. We are eager to keep working with him, and with IPC, to find new and exciting ways to stimulate economic growth and innovation in North Texas.”

Rep. Johnson’s visit was part of IPC’s “Meet the Policymakers” program, through which IPC government relations staff arrange opportunities for IPC member-companies to host elected officials at company locations. This is the second visit in 2015 by a Member of Congress to Creation Technologies’ facilities. On April 8, U.S. Rep. Tim Walz (D-MN-1) visited Creation Technologies’ facility in St. Peter, Minnesota.

IPC member companies interested in hosting a legislator should contact IPC Vice President of Government Relations John Hasselmann at JohnHasselmann@ipc.org.
