Pentagon Technologies Group Plans Mesa, Arizona, Operations

Pentagon Technologies Group, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Japan-based Kurita Water Industries, Ltd. and a provider of manufacturing support services, contamination detection, and protection consumables to the semiconductor and microelectronics industries, plans to establish operations in Mesa, Arizona. The more than $50 million project is expected to create up to 300 jobs.

The new semiconductor cleaning facility, located at the View 202 industrial park along Ellsworth and Warner roads, is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2024.

“We are thrilled to partner with the City of Mesa in building a cutting-edge facility to support the growth of semiconductor fabs in Arizona,” said Dave Christeson, CEO of Pentagon. “Our facility will have the capability to provide precision cleaning to industry leaders on the most advanced semiconductor tools in the industry. We are excited to provide so many new jobs in such an exciting industry to people in the Mesa area.”

Pentagon’s proprietary services and products improve the utilization, yield and life cycle of complex manufacturing equipment used in high technology fabrication. The company currently operates facilities in Arizona, California, Israel, Ireland, New York, Oregon, Texas and Japan (Kuritec Services).

“We are excited industry leader Pentagon Technologies has chosen Arizona for its innovative semiconductor operations,” noted Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA). “Pentagon Technologies’ new facility strengthens Arizona’s already robust semiconductor supply chain, which is the fastest-growing in the nation. We are grateful to Pentagon Technologies for its investment in Arizona and look forward to supporting the company’s success in Mesa.”
