ClassOne Equipment Selected To Upgrade Major UK Fab


ClassOne Equipment, Atlanta-based provider of refurbished name-brand semiconductor processing equipment, has announced the sale of multiple systems to a major global components manufacturer as part of a significant upgrade to their UK fab. Semitool Batch Spray Solvent Tools and Tepla barrel etch processing equipment – all refurbished by ClassOne – will be installed at the customer facility in England.

“They selected ClassOne for two important reasons," said ClassOne CEO, Byron Exarcos. “First, our refurbished tools are providing “better-than-new" performance because the equipment is completely refurbished from the frame up, replacing all older-technology elements with current state-of-the-art parts – such as the advanced Windows 7 control systems. And secondly, ClassOne is able to provide this customer with a very strong local service and support infrastructure in the UK, which is essential to their operation."

"This is a milestone fab upgrade, and we’re proud to be playing an important role in it," said Exarcos. "Because we’ve built a strong relationship with this particular customer for nearly a decade. Now we're able to support their UK facility with a local team of senior product, process and field service engineers – and with the fast response times they're looking for."

Exarcos noted that ClassOne's UK support group has over 100 years of combined experience specifically on Semitool equipment and single-wafer systems. He cited this as an example of ClassOne’s ongoing initiative to provide “an unbeatable level of quality products and support" across Europe for single-wafer electroplating, batch spray tools, and other process equipment.

In addition to the refurbished systems sold by ClassOne Equipment, ClassOne also sells its own brand of new processing systems through a sister company, ClassOne Technology. These include new Solstice electrochemical plating systems and Trident spray solvent tools (SSTs) as well as new spin rinse dryers (SRDs). The stated goal of both ClassOne companies is to provide advanced processing solutions for a broad range of budget-conscious users, many of whom are in emerging technologies.
