Electro Scientific Industries, Inc.
| Nasdaq: ESIO
Electro Scientific Industries, Inc. supplies laser-based manufacturing solutions for the microtechnology industry. Its laser systems enables precise structuring of micron to submicron features in components and devices, which are used in a wide variety of end products in the consumer electronics, computer, semiconductor, communications and other markets. The company operates through single segment, including high-technology manufacturing equipment, which is comprised of products that are organized in three groups: Interconnect & Microfabrication, Semiconductor and Components. The Interconnect & Microfabrication group products address an expanding number of applications and materials on a broad set of substrates, including panels, continuous-feed reels, and discrete three dimensional components or devices. The Semiconductor group products address multiple applications that utilize laser energy to process materials on wafer-based substrates. This group includes traditional silicon wafers, LEDs wafers, and new ultrathin silicon wafers used in the three-dimensional (3D) packaging applications. The Components group designs and manufactures products that provide solutions for manufacturers of multilayer ceramic capacitors and other passive components such as capacitor arrays, inductors, resistors, varistors and hybrid circuits. Electro Scientific Industries was founded in 1944 and is headquartered in Portland, OR.
