Founded in 1979, Reid-Ashman has become the world’s leading supplier of mechanical solutions to the semiconductor test industry thanks to its commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Founded in San Jose, Calif., and now based in St. George, Utah, Reid-Ashman can design and develop equipment and customize products in ways that meet the challenges of its customers’ test-floor environments and test-system applications.
Reid-Ashman designs and manufactures test head manipulators, electrical interfacing products and mechanical interfacing products for the semiconductor test industry. As a vertically integrated organization, Reid-Ashman maintains control of the entire manufacturing process. Its administrative, production, engineering, quality assurance, shipping and receiving, machine shop, crating and paint shop are all housed in two buildings on the company’s five-acre site in St. George.
“Rather than outsourcing, we brought everything in-house when we moved to Utah,” President Mark Reid says. “We own our facilities. All of this has given us a lot of control over the production process. The only things we outsource are sheet metal, welding and commercial items like bearings.”
