ClassOne Technology Opens New European Office

ClassOne Technology | November 10, 2015

Kalispell, MT – ClassOne Technology, developer and provider of wet processing equipment, has announced the opening of a new European sales and support office in Ulm, Germany.

“We are seeing a significant upsurge in our business in Europe,” said Win Carpenter, ClassOne’s VP of Global Sales. “This new office is a natural and very important expansion of our infrastructure; it’s essential for giving our European customers the level of rapid response and first-class support we insist on.”

The new Ulm office will be headed by Sales Director Roland Seitz, and the service engineering team will be led by Helmut Schlenker. Both men are veterans in the field with long experience in the equipment industry. The facility will also maintain a substantial parts inventory to enable rapid deployment to ClassOne customers.

“At ClassOne we put a major emphasis on serving emerging markets who work on 3- to 8-inch wafers — many of whom are based in Europe,” said Byron Exarcos, President of ClassOne. “We understand that these companies have processes that would benefit from more advanced equipment, but they usually don’t have huge equipment budgets. So we’ve developed tools that can deliver more performance for a more affordable price — often less than half of what similarly configured tools from the larger manufacturers would cost. And that’s why we’re getting increased interest from emerging markets and from Europe.”

ClassOne’s wet processing equipment includes the Solstice® family of electroplating tools and Trident® spin-rinse-dryers and spray solvent tools. The Solstice electroplating family includes the LT for process development; the 4-chambered S4 for mid-range production; and the 8-chambered, fully-automated S8 which delivers up to 75wph throughput. The Solstice line is specifically designed to provide advanced yet cost-efficient plating for MEMS, Sensors, LEDs, RF, Interposers and other emerging technologies for ≤200mm wafers. Because of its unique affordability, ClassOne equipment has come to be known as “Advanced Wet Processing for the Rest of Us.
