was spun off from Fluoroware in the 1980's. Wayne Bongard of Fluoroware
began Empak with a number of products primarily focused on wafer
shipping. Soon Empak began introducing PFA (Teflon) carriers for
wafer processing and other products that competed with Fluoroware
such as chip trays and photomask carriers and storage boxes.
flourished in the 1990's and rapidly expanded into other markets
such as security packages for cassette tapes and VHS movies, 'Jewel'
boxes for CD, and trays for frozen foods. This expansion continued
with the acquisition of Bush Lake Industries - a manufacturer
of storage bins, organizing cabinets and can crushers.
Fluoroware merged with Empak to form Entegris. The combined companies
went public and are traded under the symbol ENTG. Today, Entegris
has a market capitalization of over $1-billion. Electronic Container
obtains Empak products as used and excess inventory from wafer
fabs and offers them to our customers at deeply discounted prices.
