memsstar Limited, a provider of etch and deposition equipment and technology solutions to manufacturers of semiconductors and micro-electrical mechanical systems (MEMS), today announced that it has relocated to a new, larger facility. The move represents a strategic investment in its business, to ensure the company’s ability to meet growing demand for its proprietary MEMS equipment and fully remanufactured semiconductor etch and deposition equipment.
“This move positions memsstar extremely well to support the rapidly growing European semiconductor and global MEMS markets,” said Tony McKie, CEO of memsstar. “Our background in semiconductor etch and deposition processes positions us to deliver the most advanced MEMS platforms and best remanufactured equipment in the industry. With strong growth on the horizon, investing in our facilities and infrastructure ensures that we can continue to meet customer demand.”
Located in Livingston, Scotland, the new, dedicated 1600 sq m facility houses the company’s corporate headquarters, manufacturing, spare parts and customer training facilities. The facility has a 300 sq m Class 1000 cleanroom for manufacturing in addition to dedicated clean facilities and service areas. Representing a 40 percent increase in manufacturing capacity over the company’s prior location, cleanroom space will be dedicated to manufacturing memsstar’s advanced MEMS platforms for the global marketplace and remanufacturing etch and deposition equipment from Lam, Novellus and Applied Materials to serve its European semiconductor customers.
