SemiGen, the RF/microwave solutions company, has acquired the thin film circuit New Hampshire-based manufacturer, Ion Beam Milling.

To realise the synergies between the two companies, Ion Beam Milling fabrication equipment and their entire staff will be transitioned into SemiGen’s 43,000 square foot facility in Londonderry, New Hampshire over the next 3 months.

This facility contains multiple clean rooms including a fully renovated wafer fabrication area to support the additional product and volume and is expected to transition with minimal down time.

Jim Barrett, President of Ion Beam will be assisting in the transition of the company. While this plan is developed, there will be no changes in the business operations of Ion Beam Milling.

“We’re very excited about this key acquisition,” said Jim Morgan, CEO of SemiGen. “It’s enabled us to make the strategic move into thin film while leveraging our current offerings.

“Ion Beam Milling has an exceptional heritage we expect to build on.”
