Plasma-Therm, LLC a leading manufacturer of plasma-process equipment for the semiconductor industry, is pleased to announce the opening of its Specialty Process Engineering Group facility in Somerset, England.
“The new office is a natural step for Plasma-Therm as it brings us closer to our UK and Irish customers and partners,” says Abdul Lateef, CEO of Plasma-Therm. “After the earlier acquisition of JLS Designs, we had the perfect platform to supplement with resources to enable the creation of a highly specialized and flexible engineering team that is ideally suited to support our growth and our customers’ future engineering needs.”
Plasma-Therm’s increased presence in Europe solidifies its commitment to the renewed growth in semiconductor manufacturing in the region. The UK and Europe have been driving the innovation for the “Internet of Things” and Plasma- Therm’s suite of equipment dovetails perfectly through the evolution from R&D to Pilot Production to Full Production with the “Lab to Fab” strategy.
Established in 1974, Plasma-Therm is a manufacturer of advanced plasma processing equipment for specialty semiconductor markets, including advanced packaging, wireless communication, photonics, solid-state lighting, MEMS/NEMS, nanotechnology, renewable energy, data storage, photomask, and R&D.
