As a leader in electronics manufacturing, Intervala was proud to offer its services to help IPC with creating updated content, and Dave was the right person for the job! The video is now available for purchase from IPC through the IPC EDGE 2 streaming library https://edge.ipc.org/course/component-identification.

Intervala Employees Celebrate the Holidays With Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest

There were snowmen and snowflakes, santas and sleighs, a yeti and a unicorn, bears, penguins and gingerbread men. There were Christmas lights, candy canes, pompoms and colorful tassels. There were funny sweaters, traditional sweaters and even tiny sweaters on sweaters. But, by employee vote, the ugliest sweaters of all were those donned by Sarah Martin, Robert Shine and Phil Koelsch in Intervala’s first Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest. For their holiday spirit and courage, the winners take home an Omaha Steaks or Honey Baked Ham gift card. Thanks to everyone who participated in this fun event!
