Astro Pak has opened one of the largest Class 100 and 1000 cleanroom installations in the US for contract precision cleaning. Company president and owner Ken Verheyen describes the project.
US-based Astro Pak has been a leading provider of precision cleaning and passivation services in North America since 1959. In the early years, the company focused on precision cleaning of components and hardware for NASA exploration systems and equipment. In more recent years, the company improved its technologies and extended the precision cleaning applications to the medical device, semiconductor, laser and biopharma sectors as well as a myriad of other markets, while remaining a leader in contract cleaning for the aerospace and defence industries.
In early 2011, Astro Pak embarked on a project to update and modernise its west coast and east coast cleanroom facilities. Completion of these operations will be in February 2012.
