Colonial Buys Chemcut GSK ECLIPSE DM System

June 20, 2012

Mark Osborn, president and owner of Colonial Circuits, has announced that his company has acquired GSK Eclipse direct metallization equipment as part of the company's expansion into higher-technology PCBs.

“There were a number of reasons for buying the GSK ECLIPSE DM systems. First, we wanted to upgrade our current system so that we would be able to handle microvias as well as very thin panels,” said Osborn. “One goal for this year is to be fully invested in the HDI microvia technology and this particular system is critical to that goal. Because we have been Mil-Certified, Nuclear and Flight approved for direct metallization for over 18 years we know a great deal about direct metallization technology and therefore understand just how good this particular piece of equipment is.”

“Second,” Osborn continued, “is that Chemcut is an American company building products right here in the U.S. It is important to us, as we move forward, to buy American whenever possible."
