manufacturing equipment supplier, Modutek Corporation

Originally founded in 1980, Modutek Corporation began manufacturing wet process equipment components for the fast growing Semiconductor industry for over 35 years. Their specialties included the high temperature quartz heated baths, sub-ambient filtration systems, nitride etch baths and rinsing systems. Modutek’s original market was selling both to end users and support for OEM’s of wet process stations. During the early 90’s environmental issues associated with the Semiconductor industry became a concern. To help support this growing market Modutek acquired Shannon Engineering and changed the name to Pollution Control Laboratories (PCL). This new environmental group was run as a Modutek subsidiary manufacturing air scrubbers, acid neutralization systems and chemical delivery systems. By the late 90’s Modutek dropped the subsidiary. From that point; these environmental systems were manufactured under the Modutek name. Semiconductor wet process equipment manufacturers and the overall Tech Industry has weathered many downturns in business over the years. Since 2000, many OEM wet process bench manufacturers have left the industry. This gave Modutek the perfect opportunity to expand. With Modutek’s long history, experience and expertise, the company is in a good position as a turnkey equipment manufacturing operation.
