SHELLBACK Headquarters Renovation & Expansion
COOPERSBURG, PA, 9.27.2023 – SHELLBACK Semiconductor Technology, which is at the forefront of supplying capital equipment solutions to emerging semiconductor markets worldwide, announced today the completion of their corporate headquarters renovation in Coopersburg, PA. The site, which also acts as the primary design and manufacturing center for their SEMITOOL batch spray technologies, underwent an extensive six-month renovation to optimize manufacturing workflow and increase capacity to meet anticipated demand in 2024. The renovation also incorporates a state-of-the-art engineering & design area, reconfigured conference rooms for global meeting capabilities and team work spaces.
This work represents the 3rd and final phase of SHELLBACK’S global expansion plans spanning the last two years. Phase one culminated with the opening of the SHELLBACK Taiwan Manufacturing Center to better serve the Asian market. Phase two reconfigured and extensively expanded manufacturing capabilities at their Rite Track subsidiary in Ohio.
SHELLBACK COO Mike Lombardi stated, “We are excited to open our newly renovated headquarters for our employees and our customers. While the reconfiguration work took 6 months, this phase was a year in the making with all the preparation required by our team to get it right. We are extremely proud of the result as we grow to meet market demand globally.
Phillip Sundin, SHELLBACK Business Development Manager, noted, “This extensive facility transformation enables us to fulfill anticipated demand for our industry leading SEMITOOL batch spray equipment line including Torrent. Torrent is crucial in support of the explosive growth in SiC, Power and Photonics markets and the Semiconductor industry’s forecasted expansion to $1T by 2030. This includes production of Torrent Eco-Clean with our award-winning HydrOzone chemical-replacement technology, an environmentally safe surface preparation system that eliminates chemicals to help clients reach important industry greenhouse gas reduction goals. The completion of this renovation couldn’t have come at a better time for our customers.”
