CAPLINQ Signs Agreement with AAA

CAPLINQ Ned­er­land announced today its plans to rep­re­sent Advanced Applied Adhe­sives (AAA) to its cus­tomer base in Europe, the Mid­dle East and Africa. Under the terms of the agree­ment, CAPLINQ will rep­re­sent AAA’s com­plete prod­uct offer­ing includ­ing AAA’s pro­pri­etary tech­nol­o­gy for con­duc­tive and non-con­duc­tive die attach pastes, and B‑stage prod­ucts for lead­frame, lam­i­nate and stacked die applications.

The right building blocks

Advanced Applied Adhe­sives offers a wide range of con­duc­tive and non-con­duc­tive die attach adhe­sives for Lead­frame, BGA, and Stacked Die appli­ca­tions, fea­tur­ing low bleed, low CTE, low stress, and the recent­ly intro­duced Self-Fil­let­ing™ capa­bil­i­ties. In addi­tion, a num­ber of B‑stage mate­ri­als are avail­able for BOC (Board-on-Chip), Bot­tom Die Attach, and Wafer-Back-Coat­ing applications.

We are proud to join forces with Chris Per­abo and the CAPLINQ Ned­er­land team,” remarked Frank Hus­son, Pres­i­dent of AAA. “The rep­u­ta­tion and exper­tise of Chris is well known in the indus­try. We are tru­ly excit­ed about the oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able to us through his exten­sive con­tacts and years of expe­ri­ence in the Euro­pean semi­con­duc­tor market.”

A strategic fit

The die attach and spe­cial­ty adhe­sive offer­ing of AAA com­ple­ments the strate­gic direc­tion of CAPLINQ Ned­er­land, who’s aim is to sup­ply a com­plete line of prod­ucts to semi­con­duc­tor man­u­fac­tur­ers there­by enabling them to reduce their time-to-market.

CAPLINQ’s cus­tomers will be the real ben­e­fi­cia­ries of this new rela­tion­ship,” stat­ed Chris Per­abo, Founder of CAPLINQ Ned­er­land. “AAA has a rep­u­ta­tion in the indus­try to be very inno­v­a­tive and very respon­sive, two key ele­ments need­ed to meet cus­tomers’ lat­est pack­age design needs.”

About Advanced Applied Adhe­sives (AAA)
Advanced Applied Adhe­sives was found­ed in 2002 by Frank Hus­son to man­u­fac­ture and mar­ket die attach adhe­sives and spe­cial­ty mate­ri­als for the micro­elec­tron­ics indus­try. The com­pa­ny occu­pies a 32,000 square foot facil­i­ty in San Diego that had pre­vi­ous­ly been Hon­ey­well Incorporated’s Advanced Poly­mer Oper­a­tion. The build­ing has Class 1,000–100,000 clean rooms and pro­duc­tion areas, and exten­sive pro­duc­tion and ana­lyt­i­cal equip­ment for vol­ume man­u­fac­tur­ing of pre­cious met­al pow­ders, pro­pri­etary poly­mers and spe­cial­ty adhesives.

AAA has a strate­gic alliance with Design­er Mol­e­cules, Inc. (DMI), a sis­ter com­pa­ny with com­mon own­er­ship. Also found­ed by Mr. Hus­son in 2001, DMI’s busi­ness mod­el is focused on the design and licens­ing of unique mol­e­cules, includ­ing adhe­sive mol­e­cules, for spe­cif­ic cus­tomer require­ments. DMI’s co-founder, Dr. Stephen Der­shem, a key inven­tor of the first BMI liq­uid monomer, is also a prin­ci­pal of the company.

With more than 300MT year­ly of chem­i­cals and plas­tics com­ing through Rot­ter­dam in the Nether­lands and a staff of engi­neers and tech­ni­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tives, CAPLINQ is a mod­ern-day mar­ket part­ner. Using dig­i­tal-age tools and the same legal tech­niques multi­na­tion­als use, we cre­ate a Euro­pean pres­ence for for­eign com­pa­nies with­out them requir­ing to set up a Euro­pean enti­ty. We do this with four pri­ma­ry ser­vices: our order ful­fill­ment Europe ser­vice, our tech­ni­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion ser­vice, our tech­ni­cal mar­ket­ing ser­vice and our REACH Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive ser­vice.
