SHELLBACK acquires MERCURY+ Batch Spray Product Line from Tokyo Electron


SHELLBACK Semiconductor Technology has acquired the MERCURY+ batch spray cleaning product line from Tokyo Electron Limited.

SHELLBACK's agreement with TEL includes intellectual property rights for the MERCURY™+ product line granting SHELLBACK the ability to provide new & remanufactured systems, upgrades, parts, and field service support to the industry worldwide. This includes the upgrade of existing systems at customer fabs with the new MERCURY™+ controller. SHELLBACK plans to utilize their newly enhanced corporate headquarters and manufacturing center in Coopersburg, PA to design and manufacture new MERCURY™+ systems and upgrades, and to provide parts as well as technical support.

Wayne Jeveli, CEO of SHELLBACK said, "MERCURY™+ is a great complement to our existing industry leading wet process technology, with high throughput capabilities that make it ideal for emerging markets like Power Devices and MEMS. We thank Tokyo Electron for selecting SHELLBACK for this acquisition, and we look forward to working with their global team in the coming months as we transition the responsibilities for this product line. Our mutual priority is seamless support for our customers."

Mark Dougherty, Tokyo Electron America & TEL Manufacturing and Engineering of America President said, "The MERCURY™+ product line transition to SHELLBACK aligns perfectly with our intended market focus and ensures that our shared customers have continued access to the spectrum of products that best fit their technology and production needs. Tokyo Electron will now focus our innovative energy on further enhancing the broad, advanced capabilities of the Zeta™+ 200mm and 300mm family of spray batch cleaning technology to meet the future needs of our valued customers."
