“I’ll share my experience as well as praise after dealing with UC Components for more than three decades. I retired 3 years ago as manager for utilities and facilities for the University of California – Berkeley’s Marvell NanoFabrication Laboratory as well as its predecessor, the Microlab. Berkeley’s engineering staff consistently received excellent support in fulfilling the component needs to support of a wide variety of commercial semiconductor process tools and for its unique, custom-designed research systems. UC Components is the go-to source for quality high vacuum components, a service-oriented company with an informed, knowledgeable staff, always willing to go the extra distance to meet customer needs. You won’t find better.”
