SemiGen Acquires Ion Beam Milling; Expands Thin Film Capabilities


Reading time ( words)

SemiGen Inc., an ISO and ITAR registered provider of RF and microwave contract assembly, automated PCB assembly, foundry services, semiconductor devices, and RF supplies, has acquired Ion Beam Milling.

Based in Manchester, New Hampshire, Ion Beam Milling is a 35-year-old manufacturing company who pioneered several thin film circuit processing techniques using innovative ion beam milling approaches. They have serviced the RF and microwave industry with thin film products and fabrication services which include custom and standard attenuators, filters, heat spreaders, high power resistors, laser diode sub-mounts, lange couplers, planar chip inductors, and transmission lines, to name a few.

To realize the synergies between the two companies, all Ion Beam Milling fabrication equipment and their entire staff will be transitioned into SemiGen's 43,000 square foot facility in Londonderry, New Hampshire over the next 3 months. This modern facility contains multiple clean rooms including a fully renovated wafer fabrication area to support the additional product line.

"Gail and I are happy to have found a buyer like SemiGen who understands the business and will continue to service our customers while providing long term stability to our staff," said Bob Quagan, founder of Ion Beam Milling.

Jim Barrett, president of Ion Beam, will be assisting in the transition of the company. While this plan is developed, there will be no changes in the business operations of Ion Beam Milling.

"We're very excited about this key acquisition," said Jim Morgan, CEO of SemiGen. "It's enabled us to make the strategic move into thin film while leveraging our current offerings. Ion Beam Milling has an exceptional heritage that we expect to build on."
