IMTEC Launches New Business Unit and Hires Industry Veteran Lee Stevens to Manage Operations
IMTEC Acculine is pleased to announce the formation of a new business unit, IMTEC Legacy Systems. The new venture will be focused on sales, refurbishment, and service of semiconductor front end equipment, as well as providing hard to find spare parts. IMTEC will specialize in Gasonics and KLA tools, but will have the ability to work on many Ashers, Etchers, and other dry process and metrology tools.
Heading up the new division is Lee Stevens. Lee has been involved with Semiconductor front end equipment since 1979 and was operations manager at SPEC (Surplus Process Equipment Corporation) since 2010. Lee will be managing sales for the new division as well as overseeing operations.
IMTEC has dedicated 2,500 square feet inside it’s facility in Fremont for the refurbishment and testing of surplus equipment. The new area will have space and facilities for working on multiple tools in a clean room environment.
Paul Mendes, President, says “We see the support of Legacy equipment as being vital to the industry and a natural complement to our wet process modules business. We believe this diversification will benefit our customer base and provide a platform for growth.”
