AG Semiconductor Limited (AG Semi) is one of the largest
suppliers in the world of second-hand semiconductor manufacturing
equipment. We specialize in front-end manufacturing equipment acquired
from leading chip manufacturers in the United States and Europe
(including Agere, AMD, Fujitsu, IBM, Infineon, Lucent and Philips).
Most of our purchases are made in bulk, when a fabrication facility is
being shut down, although we also acquire individual tools on a
selective basis. During the past decade, AG Semi or its predecessors
have acquired over 1,000 front-end manufacturing tools with an original
equipment cost (OEC) in excess of $1.5 billion.
We sell to both established and early stage companies around
the world, with sales comprising either individual tools or complete
manufacturing lines. Our sales often include refurbishment,
installation and warranty, but can also be done "as is, where is".
Most of our current inventory is located at an 11,000 square
meter temperature controlled storage and clean refurbishment facility
in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
AG Semi is managed by AG Semiconductor Services, Inc.,
headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut. The principals of AG Semi
Services have negotiated all of the portfolio purchases undertaken by
AG Semi and manage all of the sales, refurbishment and other activities
undertaken by AG Semi. AG Semi Services has sales representatives in
the United States, Europe and China.
