10/13 IMTEC Emphasis On People Development And Community Outreach


IMTEC Acculine Committed to Community Building in Silicon Valley and Beyond

FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It may seem odd that IMTEC Acculine, a leader in technology in Silicon Valley backed a Stingless bee honey project in Eastern Africa. But when you look into IMTEC's company culture, you can easily find the connections to why a company would back such a project.

IMTEC places a strong emphasis on individual development and community building.  The Kali Honey Project was started by 2 Silicon Valley locals after returning from a trip to Africa.  They were working hard to rally support locally to help African women establish stingless bee farming co-ops.  After reaching out to local businesses in the Silicon Valley, IMTEC quickly stepped up to the plate to back the project without any hesitation.  This is because IMTEC is committed to helping build community both locally and abroad.

IMTEC Acculine has a long history of community building through its employees as well as other community involvement. Many of IMTEC Acculine's employees have been with the company for a very long time.  Some employees have been employed for 15, 20, 30 or even 37 years.  For instance, Rich Tapia has been with the company since its inception, working his way up from shipping clerk to head of purchasing.  This goes to show that IMTEC rewards those who are dedicated to hard work with advancement opportunities which are hard to find these days. 

Each year, IMTEC's President, Paul Mendes tries his hand at grilling during the company's annual BBQ.  Mendes was quoted as saying that, "IMTEC employees are committed to delivering quality products for the semiconductor industry, and IMTEC's management is committed to focusing on our employee's personal and professional growth, because they are the most valuable asset to our company."  It is clear that IMTEC's entire management team is committed to creating a people focused working environment.

IMTEC Acculine is poised to move beyond the semiconductor industry into other emerging technologies such as LED, Solar, MEMs and the Bio Medical field.  With a strong commitment to innovation as well as an incredibly strong workforce and a committed community, IMTEC is poised for continued growth.
