OUR MOTTO

Orientation towards results, quality, trust

We do not offer mainstream products. Whether it is the most insignificant small part or our fully automatic equipment, you can expect individual solutions in all aspects. Customer orientation is no mere lip service for us, but the entire foundation of our business.

We constantly create taylor-made products and processes in a pragmatic and absolutely results-oriented manner. With sound expert knowledge, our hands on mentality and a great portion of innovative spirit, as well as inventiveness, we always come up with what our customers need and other suppliers can’t do. At the same time you can absolutely trust the quality of our products and processes. With our quality work we also support our customers in maintaining the quality of their production processes and consequently, their finished products. So, many renowned companies are among our customers, with whom we have been sharing longtime business relationships based on mutual trust.

In the heart of Europe

amcoss GmbH headquarters is in Feldkirch, Vorarlberg, an industrial region characterized by modern medium-sized enterprises in a scenic and magnificent landscape in the west of Austria. From here, the internationally active company sells its products and services into many countries all over the world. Here you can also find our research department with its laboratory and cleanroom for equipment final assembly. amcoss cooperates with strong partners worldwide to develop high-class solutions.

Constant sustainability since the beginning

Sustainability is in vogue. Every company concerned about its reputation currently
occupies this topic. amcoss also, especially its finished products, are sustainable and have been since the beginning. So, sustainability becoming of public interest over the last years, has always been of central interest to us. Our components and equipment present savings potential in various respects because they improve our customers´ cost- and energy efficiency and they contribute to saving resources and occupational safety. They are part of circular economy and make it become reality. Many of our components are brought back into the economic cycle and therefore prolong the lifetimes of machines for which manufacturers no longer offer spare parts or repair services and so force customers into buying new equipment and to destroy old, but still functional machines.

OUR SUCCESS STORY

Continuous business development

2003 David Erne and an investment group buy shares of the Swiss Gretag AG and he founds a company that manufactures optical components and systems for Imaging. He sets up a product line for optical spare parts for I-line and DUV steppers and develops refurbishment processes for optical components.
2008 amcoss is founded as a limited liability company and builds up a sales network to market optics for lithography on a global scale.
2009 amcoss obtains distributorship for Europe for Ohara Glass wafer products & distributorship for Advanced Industrial Ceramics.
2010 Start of Semiconductor Competence Centre. Start of the first equipment engineering projects & electro-mechanical repair. The range of optical and mechanical components for which we offer refurbishments, repairs and engineering is being constantly expanded.
2012 amcoss launches its versatile coating platform amc.
2013 amcoss starts project to obtain ISO9001 certification.
2014 May 2014: amcoss obtains ISO9001 certification!
2015 The first amcoss amh Heat Exchanger model is being produced.
2016 amcoss releases a new generation of fully automatic amc wafer processing equipment for coating, development and temperature control.
2017 amcoss plans and moves into new, spacious premises with specialized laboratory as well as clean- and grey rooms for equipment assembly.
2019 amcoss releases semi-automatic amr 200 and amr 300 wafer processing equipment for flexible small lot production. It also develops its comfortable and Semi-Standard E95-1101 approved, ams PILOT Software for process control. Also, refurbishment/repair for Wafertec pumps is being offered.
2020 The repertoire of wafer processing machines is being expanded by cleaning, lift-off and etching modules and amc 2000 is being fitted with the option of a dual end-effector for high throughput. Amcoss opens its smart lab for test runs, process qualification and small lot production.
2021 amcoss introduces the new amc models, amc 500 for wet processes and amc 3000 for substrates up to 300mm. In cooperation with FIMA-Chem amcoss develops a new chrome-etching procedure where the etching substance is being recycled, refreshed and re-used directly in the machine. We also offer refurbishment of masking blades.
