July 7, 2006 – Cascade Microtech of Beaverton, Ore., announced it is opening two new sales and service offices in Asia and expanding its operations to meet the needs of a rapidly growing customer base in the region.
The company said the expansion reflects the global growth of the semiconductor market and the company’s rapid sales growth in the Asian-Pacific region. In order to better serve existing customers and expand to serve new customers, the company will now offer direct sales, service and applications support in the new offices located in Shanghai, People’s Republic of China and Hsin Chu City, Taiwan.
Cascade Microtech provides tools for the precise electrical measurement and test of integrated circuits (ICs) and other small structures. “Since 2003, our Singapore office has been extremely successful and we intend to replicate this business model in China and Taiwan to provide greater overall value to our customers,” said John Pence, vice president and general manager, in a prepared statement. “We want to respond quickly to customer needs and make certain that we assist customers as they bring up critical new semiconductor processes.”
