PPC Jumps to #2 for Industry Impact on Nationwide Patent Board Scorecard

    Company Climbs Three Spots in Overall Ranking of Technical Strength

    EAST SYRACUSE, N.Y., Sept. 5 /CNW/ -- PPC, a global manufacturer of
connector technology for the cable TV, satellite, wireless and
telecommunications industries, rose to the number two spot for industry impact
among the top 35 most innovative companies in the United States, according to
the Industrial Components and Fixtures Patent Scorecard published August 19,
2008, in the Wall Street Journal.
    "Innovation -- it's that simple," said President John Mezzalingua of the
reason behind PPC's success. "We are a company comprised of big thinkers with
even bigger ideas, and that translates directly to the impact we're making on
the industry. The jump to second place on the scorecard is a true
acknowledgement of a company culture rooted in the pursuit of new ideas. The
credit goes to the people of PPC and their commitment to putting innovation at
the core of everything we do."
    PPC's industry impact was so significant that it ranked "too far outside
of the range of data points to be charted," according to the Wall Street
Journal. With 200 patents to its credit, PPC also saw a rise in its overall
ranking of technical strength -- climbing up three spots to 11th on the patent
scorecard. This is the third consecutive time PPC has appeared on the
Industrial Components and Fixtures Patent Scorecard in the past 16 months.
Released by the Patent Board, the scorecard tracks more than 2,500 of the
world's top technology firms across 17 industries and ranks the overall
strength of their patent portfolio holdings.
    With more patents in connector technology than any other company
worldwide, PPC has pioneered many of the advancements available in the
industry today and is a proven leader in the design and manufacture of
connector technology for the telecommunications, satellite and wireless
industries around the globe. PPC's innovations include the Universal
Compression Connector, widely used by all major cable TV and satellite
companies; the wireless compression connector for the wireless industry, and
the only locking HDMI connector. Headquartered in E. Syracuse, NY, U.S.A., PPC
also has locations in Denmark, St. Kitts and China. For more information,
