Brooks Instrument, a world-leading provider of advanced flow, pressure and level solutions opened the doors to its new cleanroom manufacturing facility back in December 2010. The new Class 100 cleanroom serve as the production area for Brooks' GF Series ultra high-purity mass flow controllers for the high tech and electronics industry.
According to Clark Hale, chief executive officer of Brooks Instrument, this is the largest investment Brooks Instrument has made in its manufacturing facilities worldwide.
In 2009, Brooks acquired Celerity's Instrumentation Division and this led to the need for larger cleanroom manufacturing operations of the GF Series and other devices for the electronics market. The increased demand for consumer products requiring semiconductors such as high-brightness LEDs, smartphones and tablet computers drove Brooks' foray into the industry.
Last year, Brook added close too 100 jobs at its Hatfield offices to help support its new cleanroom operations.
