Orlando, FL (PRWEB) October 05, 2016
Micross Components, Inc. (“Micross”) headquartered in Orlando, Florida is pleased to announce the strategic acquisition of RTI International’s Microsystem Integration and Packaging (“MIP”) Group, one of the premier wafer bumping and wafer level packaging research and fabrication facilities in the United States, servicing commercial and government clients, situated in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
The merger brings together MIP’s value-added semiconductor processing techniques, including wafer bumping, 2.5D/3D packaging and interconnects plus novel sensor and thermal management devices, with the global hi-reliability electronics platform of Micross Components.
“By combining the expertise and competencies of MIP and Micross, Micross will further expand its capabilities to serve customers in the defense and medical electronics sectors with advanced packaging needs – particularly those with custom processing needs or whose products are subject to export controls. Concurrently, RTI International’s seasoned MIP team (henceforward to be named the “Advanced Interconnect Technology” Group), led by Dr. John Lannon, will be able to leverage the global sales network and wafer supply partnerships Micross has developed. Additionally, MIP can now offer its package solutions in conjunction with other Micross advanced service divisions, such as STS in Milpitas. This is an exciting strategic opportunity for both organizations,” stated Richard Kingdon, CEO of Micross Components.
“For some time we have been thinking about the future growth of our Electronics and Applied Physics Division, which provides value-added semiconductor processing services for government and commercial clients,” advised RTI International President & CEO Wayne Holden, Ph.D. “This merger supports RTI’s long-term strategy, will stimulate faster growth for the MIP operation and will allow MIP to better capitalize on the opportunities that exist in the US defense and medical electronics industries.”
