Photo Stencil, a leading full-service provider of high-performance stencils and tooling, will add a 35,200 square foot manufacturing plant and production center in Golden, Colorado.
The facility, which will include three cleanrooms, will be used to manufacture the electroform and more complex stencils needed for the small components and shrinking spaces found in advanced semiconductor packaging and challenging SMT applications. Laser and chemetch step stencils, blades, and screens will continue to be manufactured in the Colorado Springs facility.
“This makes us the cleanest stencil manufacturer anywhere,” said Rachel Miller-Short, Global VP of sales, Photo Stencil. “The continued move to shrinking components -- reaching 30 microns and below -- and package-on-package applications challenge the solutions side of our business. Applications like these require a fully clean environment coupled with the latest technologies, manufacturing capabilities, and engineering teams. Photo Stencil focuses on these requirements and on meeting the needs of our customers today and beyond. This new facility will ensure our abilities to continue doing so, successfully.”
"We are very excited to have Photo Stencil expanding into our county. We look forward to having another global technology leader in our community," said Jefferson County Commissioner Don Rosier. Full-scale manufacturing is expected to begin the first quarter of next year.
