Axus to Expand Support for Moog’s precision positioning products formerly branded as Berkeley Process Control

Chandler, AZ -- June 24, 2009 -- Moog and Axus Technology have signed an expanded distribution agreement that gives Axus responsibility for all OEM and end user support, including all sales and service activities, for a range of precision positioning products that Moog acquired via the Berkeley Process Control acquisition in October 2008.  The agreement also gives Axus added responsibility for Moog’s products installed on SCP wet benches.   

"Axus Technology has proven to be an ideal partner for Moog," said Michiel Post van der Molen, Moog’s Business Manager responsible for the precision positioning products. "This expanded agreement, including both CMP and wet bench automation products, will continue to capitalize on Axus' semiconductor equipment expertise as well as its worldwide sales and service presence.”

"Moog products have demonstrated their superior technology and reliability in semiconductor applications," said Barrie Van Devender, Axus Technology vice president of sales and marketing.  "Our increased role in distributing Moog products will allow us to build additional value into the products and services that we provide.  This new responsibility is the perfect solution for those customers that have requested product upgrades and improved support."

The above agreement also covers Axus Technology’s support of the Moog systems used in the SpeedFam Auriga® product line.
