SEMX Completes Ceramic Packaging Expansion

November 6, 2000
SEMX Corp.'s materials group recently completed a facility expansion for its ceramic packaging operation, which was acquired in April 2000 by Polese Co. in San Diego, Calif. The addition of high temperature, multilayer, co-fired ceramic packaging technology to Polese's thermal management materials capability offers customers complete vertical integration of raw materials through volume manufacturing for thermally enhanced fiber optic, microwave and high-speed digital packages. To support the anticipated growth in demand, the entire Polese infrastructure was rearranged and/or relocated into an advanced manufacturing campus, covering approximately 100,000 square feet. The new materials group headquarters is home to the ceramics division, which includes a modern clean room and support facilities. Additional capital equipment will be added during the fourth quarter of this year, including two multiple high volume production furnaces, providing additional capacity to support increased demand from existing customers, as well as new opportunities under consideration.
