DUBLIN, Pa., June 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Global Technologies, LLC (QuantumClean®), a leading provider of validated high-purity outsourced process tool parts cleaning and restoration to the semiconductor industry, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of the Metron Chamber Performance Services (Metron CPS) business from Applied Materials, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMAT). Applied Materials, headquartered in Santa Clara CA, is a world leader in semiconductor and solar wafer fabrication equipment. Metron CPS was part of the Applied Materials Global Services Group (AGS) and offers semiconductor process kit precision cleaning, coating and associated analytical testing services.

QuantumClean acquired Metron CPS in the continuing execution of its strategy to expand its high-value service offerings to all major hubs of semiconductor fabrication and related equipment and consumables manufacturing worldwide. This acquisition creates the world's largest and most capable outsourced process tool parts cleaning, refurbishing and coating service provider to the semiconductor, solar, MBE, aerospace, military, and other industries requiring these services.

"The acquisition positions QuantumClean as the only provider of outsourced process tool parts cleaning, coating and restoration services in our industry with comprehensive worldwide coverage", according to Scott Nicholas, CEO & President of QuantumClean. "The company now boasts regional, full-capability service centers in every major U.S. semiconductor market (including Colorado Springs, CO, Hillsboro, OR, Irving, TX, Phoenix, AZ, San Jose and Fremont, CA, Scarborough, ME, and Washougal, WA), Asia ( Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan), Europe ( Scotland) and the Middle East ( Israel)".

QuantumClean has also acquired from Applied two full-capability solutions-based analytical laboratories, located in Fremont, CA and Portland, OR, and additional R&D resources relating to cleaning, coating and refurbishment of process tool parts.

QuantumClean's fab, OEM, and OPM customers will benefit immediately from the acquisition in five distinct areas: unparalleled expertise in cleaning, coating and refurbishment knowhow, consistency of service worldwide, full service capability facilities, expanded analytical laboratory services, and enhanced R&D capability.
