CoorsTek, Inc. recently announced its acquisition of Gaiser Tool Co., a high-quality ceramic precision tooling manufacturer based in Ventura, Calif., with operations in Tokyo, Japan. CoorsTek plans to retain the Gaiser brand while infusing technical and material innovations to further enhance the company’s market position. With precision ceramic tools capable of part dimensions as small as 2 µm, CoorsTek also expects to expand its micro-component capabilities for a variety of markets.

“Gaiser Tool invented the wire bonding ceramic tool market in the early 1970s and now leads the high end of it with quality and innovation,” said Mark Petty, executive vice president of CoorsTek. “We bring a significant level of technical ceramic expertise to this enterprise and expect customers and their industries to benefit substantially.”
