Surface Technology Systems plc
STS designs and manufactures a range of highly specialised machines incorporating innovative technology used in the production of semiconductors and semiconductor related devices. Semiconductors, which are miniature electronic circuits, are usually associated with memory chips in computers. However, STS serves a range of applications outside this ‘mainstream’ memory chip market in several emerging sectors within the telecommunications, information technology and new micro electromechanical systems industries.
growth in recent years and have the potential for further growth as demand continues to increase for high technology products such as fibre optic telecommunications networks for Internet infrastructure, high speed wireless communication devices for mobile telephony and a new generation of sensor devices used in the automotive and aerospace industries and other mass markets.
STS is a market leader in silicon etching within the growing MEMS market with patent protected technology. In addition, STS has strong presence in each of its other served markets and distributes its machines world-wide through an experienced sales and service operation consisting of direct sales, distributors and agents.
