MEI Flying High With Large Order From Major CS Manufacturer

The multiple order for wet bench equipment from the new plant in Texas confirms the compound semiconductor company and MEI are experiencing rapid growth.

MEI produced and delivered a record order for seventeen semiconductor wet processing systems for a major compound semiconductor manufacturer, completing delivery this month.

Primary applications for the wet bench process systems are compound semiconductor etch, wafer cleaning, stripping and plating processes.

MEI  was selected as the semiconductor equipment vendor of choice for duplicating the semiconductor manufacturer’s processes of record into a new fabrication facility in Texas.

The order for custom semiconductor wet benches is remarkable, both in its size and speed. The leading compound semiconductor manufacturer requested the custom, semi-automated and manual wafer processing tools in September 2010 and needed rapid delivery.

MEI was able to meet both the production specifications and rapid delivery schedule to meet their growing business needs, and had a strong history of quality and support. Both the compound semiconductor company and MEI are experiencing rapid growth, and the production of these systems creates a significant win for the operations of both companies.

“We’re very pleased to be able to fill this large order," said Dan Cappello, CEO of MEI. “The contract is especially challenging and rewarding because of the strict performance requirements that the vendor had, combined with the rapid production schedule. With our Revolution rotary wet bench and Achiever wet processing platforms, we were able to meet their throughput and quality needs with custom wet benches. With our new production facility, we were able to ramp up and meet their schedule without difficulty."
