Demand for used micro/nano equipment prompts ClassOne’s expansion

Apr. 26, 2007 — ClassOne Equipment, Inc. has opened a new facility, significantly expanding the company’s ability to supply refurbished semiconductor and nanotechnology equipment.

The new 40,000 square foot facility, located 15 miles from the Hartsfield Airport near Atlanta, GA, effectively quadruples the space of the former facility. The layout features 10,000 square feet of lab space, for refurbishing, showcasing and demonstrating equipment. There, customers are able to “test-drive” equipment prior to purchasing, although ClassOne says this is typically not necessary because it sells most equipment with a 3-month warranty, a 30-day right of return, and a full satisfaction guarantee.

ClassOne Equipment president Byron Exarcos commented, “When we opened our former 10,000 sq. ft. facility in April 2005, we believed we had enough room to expand for the next five years.” Thanks to unforeseen growth in demand, the company found it necessary to expand again.

ClassOne offers a range of wafer process and metrology equipment including wet benches, mask aligners, photoresist coat and develop systems, etchers, polishers, dicing saws, and microscopes.
