Alpha Precision was originally founded in 1965 as Photo Instrument
Tooling Co. in Yorkville, Illinois. The original focus of the business
was to design and fabricate specialty camera equipment. Alpha Precision
has repeatedly used its strengths in design and building specialty
tooling and equipment to manufacture custom glass components. In
1979 Alpha began production of glass and ceramic substrates for
the semiconductor pressure sensors. Alpha became a pioneer in ultrasonic
drilling and machining of substrates and more than 25 years later
is a major supplier of glass wafers, shipping wafers world wide.
In February 2001 a group of investors lead by John Arthur Anderson
purchased Photo Instrument from its founder. In May of 2001 we began
operating as Alpha Precision Inc. reflecting our commitment to and
alignment with the technology based markets including semiconductor
sensors. These markets include automotive, communications, consumer,
optical, fluidic, MEMS, NANO and biomedical which maintain tremendous
potential for technological growth.
In December 2005 our quality system was certified to ISO/TS 16949:2002
to better serve our automotive customers.
Alpha's capabilities continue to grow. Let our companies work together
to make your designing, engineering or purchasing job easier.
