"The acquisition of MicroFab adds distinct manufacturing processes and products that will further complement our comprehensive product and service offering. Our business has continued to grow rapidly with ever increasing technical requirements from our customers. Facing this demand, we are confident that MicroFab will immediately augment our RF Solutions capabilities and we are excited to welcome John Kelley, Wayne Stauss, and the entire MicroFab team to SemiGen," commented Tim Filteau, President of SemiGen, Inc.

"Our team continues to excel across the Naprotek platform increasing our strengths with differentiated technologies spanning from SMT to RF/Microwave and Advanced Microelectronics. With a careful execution strategy, the integration of MicroFab into SemiGen strengthens the end-to-end RF Solutions for the East Coast operations of Naprotek," said Daniel Everitt, President and CEO of Naprotek.

"As the fourth acquisition in support of the Naprotek strategy of building an electronics technology solutions company, we are pleased to round-out SemiGen's RF circuit capabilities to further support our customers in Defense and other high-reliability markets," remarked Pete Ostergard, Partner at Edgewater Capital.
