Ultra Clean Holdings, Inc. designs, engineers, and manufactures production tools, modules and subsystems for the semiconductor capital equipment and equipment industry segments with similar requirements, including consumer, medical and flat panel display. The company conducts its operating activities primarily through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Ultra Clean Technology Systems and Service, Inc.; American Integration Technologies LLC; Ultra Clean Micro-Electronics Equipment (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.; Ultra Clean Asia Pacific, Pte Ltd.; Marchi Thermal Systems, Inc.; and Miconex. Products The company’s products include precision robotic solutions, gas delivery systems, various industrial and automation production equipment products; and subsystems that includes wafer cleaning sub-systems, chemical delivery modules, top-plate assemblies, frame assemblies, and process modules. Chemical delivery modules: Chemical delivery modules deliver gases and reactive chemicals in a liquid or gaseous form from a centralized subsystem to the reaction chamber. Frame assemblies: Frame assemblies are support structures fabricated from steel tubing or folded sheet metal and form the backbone to which all other assemblies are attached. Gas delivery systems: A typical original equipment manufacturing (OEM) gas delivery system consists of one or more gas lines, comprised of small diameter internally polished stainless steel tubing, filters, mass flow controllers, regulators, pressure transducers and valves, component heaters, and an integrated electronic and/or pneumatic control system. These systems are mounted on a pallet and are typically enclosed in a sheet metal encasing. The company’s gas delivery system designs are developed in collaboration with its customers and are customized to meet the needs of specific processing requirement for OEMs. The company’s customers either specify the particular brands of components they want incorporated into a particular system or rely on its design expertise and component characterization capabilities to help them select the appropriate components for their particular system. Liquid delivery system: A typical OEM liquid delivery system consists of one or more chemical delivery units, comprised of small diameter high purity PFA tubing, filters, flow controllers, regulators, component heaters, and an integrated electronic and/or pneumatic control system. These units are typically contained in a plastic enclosure and further integrated in a frame. The company’s liquid delivery system designs are developed in collaboration with its customers and are customized to meet the needs of specific processing requirement for OEMs. Precision robotics: Precision robotic systems are used when accurate controlled motion is required. Some of the systems that employ robotic systems include robotic surgery, semiconductor wafer and chip handling, wire bonding, and industrial equipment. Process modules: Process modules refer to the larger subsystems of semiconductor manufacturing tools that process integrated circuits onto wafers. Process modules include smaller subsystems such as the frame assembly, top-plate assembly and gas and chemical delivery modules, as well as the chamber and electronic, pneumatic and mechanical subsystems. Robotic Surgery Products: Robotic surgery is the process of performing a minimally invasive operation on a patient with the help of robotic equipment operated by a physician. Other high level assemblies: Other high level assemblies refer to large subsystems used in semiconductor manufacturing, medical, energy, industrial, flat panel and research industries. Strategy The company’s strategy comprises the following key elements: expand market share with semiconductor capital equipment OEMs; develop solutions that allow customer’s customers to succeed at the latest 2x or 1x nanometer semiconductor processing nodes; expand market share in other addressed industries; leverage geographic presence in lower cost manufacturing regions; drive profitable growth with flexible cost structure; continue to selectively pursue strategic acquisitions; develop unique solutions to enhance customer’s manufacturing; and identify markets that require rapid ‘Art to Part’ capability. Acquisition In 2015, the company acquired Marchi Thermal Systems, Inc. (Marchi), a designer and manufacturer of specialty heaters, thermocouples and temperature controllers. Marchi delivers flexible heating elements and thermal solutions to the company’s customers. In 2015, the company acquired MICONEX s.r.o. (Miconex), a privately-held provider of precision fabrication of plastics, primarily for the semiconductor industry. Sales and Support The company sells its products through its direct sales force. Customers The company sells its products primarily to customers in the semiconductor capital equipment, consumer, medical, energy, industrial, flat panel and research equipment industries. The company’s major customers in the year 2015 included Applied Materials, Inc.; Lam Research Corporation; and ASM International, Inc., each of Lam Research Corporation and Applied Materials, Inc. accounted for more than 10.0% of its total sales in the year 2015. Intellectual Property The company has four patents with various expiration dates ranging from 2016 to 2026 as a result of its acquisition of Marchi in February 2015. Competition The company’s principal competitor for its gas delivery systems is Ichor Systems, Inc., and its principal competitors for other critical subsystems are Flextronics International Ltd., Foxsemicon Integrated Technology Inc. and Celestica.
