Automated Sputtering Systems

About SSI.

Second Source was founded and incorporated in July of 1980 in the state of Connecticut. The company was started due to Perkin-Elmer's decision to stop manufacturing new systems and reduce service to its customers. Second Source has enjoyed a 50 to 90 percent growth each year by supporting those valued customers.

In September of 1996 Second Source purchased all of the remaining spare parts, assemblies, test equipment, procedures, Mylar drawings and microfiche for the Perkin-Elmer sputtering and etch product lines. This addition to our current stock has made it easier to support all of the Perkin-Elmer systems in the field. We currently stock over 5000 different items for the sputters. With the help of our superb vendors, quantity purchasing and low overhead, we are able to offer the same high quality parts that Perkin-Elmer supplied, but at prices generally 40 to 60 percent less than Perkin-Elmer or SVG Lithography.

Second Source was located in the Hudson Valley Research Park in Hopewell Junction New York. That research park is owned and operated by the IBM Corporation. We moved from the 2500 sq/ft Connecticut facility in August of 1995 to that facility with 5000 sq/ft. In 1999 we, again, doubled the size this time to 10,000 sq/ft. We recently moved to our new location in Poughkeepsie NY in order to further expand our business.
