Western WI Chapter Meeting and Tour – June 12th

Join the Western WI Chapter from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 pm for a chapter meeting at Hutchinson Technology, Inc. (HTI), 2435 Alpine Road, Eau Claire.  The meeting will be followed by a presentation and tour of HTI’s manufacturing facility. 

HTI specializes in the high volume manufacturing of microelectronic and mechanical components primarily for the smartphone and computer data storage industry. The first building was built in 1996 and HTI currently owns and operates 720,000 ft2 of manufacturing and office space at the Eau Claire site.   HTI’s environmental management system follows the ISO14001 standard.  Active programs are in place to reduce energy and water use and to minimize hazardous and non-hazardous waste generated at the facility. In 2018 the Eau Claire facility recycled or returned for re-use over 250 tons of scrap materials.  The site tour will walk through some of the manufacturing areas and will focus on the production support systems, wastewater pre-treatment systems, and waste and recycling collection and storage areas.
