Conax Technologies announces the acquisition of Arizona-based Quartz Engineering

Conax Technologies announced the acquisition of Quartz Engineering, a manufacturer of quartz sheaths for temperature sensors headquartered in Tempe, AZ. S. K. Choi, former President of Quartz engineering, will stay on and help with the integration of Quartz Engineering and Conax. Choi has 40 years of experience in the semiconductor segment of the quartz industry and 20 years of experience in the fabrication of the specific type of sheaths primarily used by Conax.

This acquisition represents a commitment to improving the company’s responsiveness and the quality of products the company can provide to customers in the semiconductor industry.

Conax Business Unit Manager Michael Ferraro stated, “We’re expanding our focus in the growing Semiconductor industry. Many of the temperature sensors used inside process chambers need a semiconductor-grade quartz sheath to protect them from the chemicals and temperatures present. With the acquisition of Quartz Engineering, we now have in-house capabilities to design and manufacture quartz sheaths for temperature sensors.”

Ferraro explained, “By producing the sheaths in-house, we maintain greater control over quality and supply; and we can provide our customers with the solutions they need faster.”

Manufacturing operations will remain at the Tempe, AZ facility. Headquartered in Buffalo, NY, Conax Technologies is a designer and manufacturer of standard and custom engineered temperature sensors, compression seal fittings and feedthroughs, probes, sensors, wires, electrodes and fiber optic cables. The company has locations on the US west coast, as well as in Canada, Europe and Asia.
