BSE acquires secondary semiconductor equipment assets

April 20, 2011 — Boston Semi Equipment LLC (BSE Group) acquired the assets of Asia Tech Corporation, launching BSE Tech LLC. BSE Tech delivers a comprehensive portfolio of pre-owned front end semiconductor manufacturing equipment and spare parts, technical capabilities and financial solutions.

BSE Tech will facilitate the lease, sale, repositioning and servicing of all makes and models of new and pre-owned front end semiconductor equipment worldwide.

Combining these new assets with our OEM remarketing and partnership agreements is a competitive move, said Doug Elder, CEO and president of BSE Group. "BSE Group’s financial backing gives BSE Tech the ability to own its own equipment and the purchasing power to acquire new tools, which is a key differentiator in this market."

BSE Tech has signed a long-term lease for a 75,000 square foot facility in Tempe, AZ, doubling the former footprint of Asia Tech. The new location will also house a new 15,000 square foot cleanroom, currently under construction. Asia Tech’s president, Francis Colligan, will join BSE Tech in the role of vice president. All employees of Asia Tech are now part of BSE Tech.

BSE Tech LLC (BSE Tech) is a global supplier of pre-owned front end semiconductor manufacturing equipment. BSE Tech buys, reconfigures, finances and sells a broad range of front end wafer fabrication equipment including all makes, models and vendors. It also offers spare parts and pumps from all of the major OEMs as well as third party manufactured goods. Boston Semi Equipment LLC (BSE Group) provides affordable solutions to semiconductor front end manufacturing and back end assembly and test through leasing, rental, and resale of equipment.
