ESI supplies high-value, high-technology manufacturing equipment to the global electronics market. Built upon a history and tradition of innovation that extends more than 50 years, we design and develop a broad range of products and systems for the markets we serve. More specifically, our equipment is used in the manufacture of semiconductors, passive components, and electronic interconnect.
ESI was founded in 1944, first producing high-precision resistance measurement instruments and reference standards. We developed laser-based systems for hybrid circuit resistor trimming in 1970. In 1980, we expanded our laser product line by introducing an advanced laser system to be used by semiconductor manufacturers in the repair of dynamic random access memory (DRAM). These are just a few of the many milestones ESI has reached on its path to product development, market expansion and financial success. Explore our history to learn more about ESI.
ESIs success as a company is based on a foundation of core principles: financial strength, global reach, people values and technology. We have manufacturing facilities in Oregon and offices throughout the world, including North America, Japan, Europe, China, Taiwan, Korea and Singapore. At present we have over 600 employees.
As a premier provider of world-class production laser systems for micro-engineering applications and photonic microengineering solutions, we take pride in anticipating and solving our customers’ manufacturing challenges. We strive to outperform industry expectations and deliver solutions, not just products.
These solutions are the result of our deep understanding of motion control, laser material interaction, automation and small parts handling, machine vision, sapphire wafer scribing and laser micromachining. Our extensive knowledge in these key areas culminates in world-class solutions for our customers.
