Concord, CA, October 25, 2002 – Nordson MARCH announces the intent to integrate with Advanced Plasma Systems under the Nordson MARCH name. Production, applications support and contract services for the printed circuit board (PCB) products will remain in Florida at the St. Petersburg facility.

APS specializes in the manufacture of plasma treatment systems used in the fabrication of PCB products; Nordson MARCH provides similar products specially designed for the semiconductor industry. With this change, Nordson MARCH now offers a complete range of plasma treatment systems that address all markets.

According to Peter Bierhuis, President of Nordson MARCH and APS, "Merging APS into Nordson MARCH allows us to create a single corporate entity devoted to the plasma business. Combining our expert teams of scientists and engineers allows us to leverage our shared technologies into new products and applications."

Nordson MARCH is the leader in gas plasma technology for the micro and opto-electronic packaging, PCB and webbed material industries. Batch systems are available in several chamber sizes with multiple-shelf configurations to accommodate magazines, strips, circuit boards, wafer and process carriers. In-line systems can support multiple substrates or carriers per run, and are SMEMA-compatible.
