ULVAC: Where innovation happens

Feb 25, 2016


Flat panel TVs, mobile phones, solar-powered gadgets and even frozen food have all become commonplace elements of modern life. What may not be apparent is vacuum technology’s role in the manufacturing and packaging of those everyday and indispensible products.

 

Headquarters of ULVAC Technologies Inc. in Methuen, Massachusetts

ULVAC Technologies Inc. (UTECH) was established in Massachusetts in 1992 in response to ULVAC Japan’s desire to globalize and create its Western Operations. Its mission is to expand market acceptance of ULVAC products and technologies to meet the R&D, pilot production and high volume manufacturing needs of its customers.

UTECH has built a Class-10 state-of-the-art clean room to create the ideal conditions required to test and manufacture the parts and components used in various vacuum-based technology products.

UTECH’s proximity to long-established centers of education and innovation has given the subsidiary of ULVAC the agility to adapt the latest vacuum technology, which has seen wider applications with the global growth of the “Internet of things,” and the related infrastructure and products required to support the IoT.

While it has benefitted from its location, ULVAC Technologies has also allowed many local startups to flourish because of the vacuum technology it has developed in its facility in Massachusetts, where it supports fellow subsidiaries in 48 locations around the world.

“The United States continues to be the center for innovation and a breeding ground for emerging technology and venture companies. We’re constantly on the lookout for new technologies that are aligned with ULVAC’s growth,” explained CEO Wayne Anderson.

Eastern USA 2016 was prepared for and originally printed in The Japan Times Newspaper.
