Xcerra is the new parent Company of LTX, atg, ETC and Multitest

28 May 2014 - Xcerra Corporation is the new parent company of four brands that have been supplying innovative products and services to the semiconductor and electronics manufacturing industry for more than 30 years. Xcerra’s four brands are atg-Luther & Maelzer, Everett Charles Technologies, LTX-Credence, and Multitest.

Xcerra Corporation was formed in 2014 following the LTX-Credence acquisition of Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) and Multitest from Dover Corporation in December of 2013. The combination of these businesses creates a company with a broad spectrum of semiconductor and PCB test expertise that drives innovative new products and services, and the ability to deliver to customers fully integrated semiconductor test cell solutions.

The strategic vision of the LTX-Credence management team in making these acquisitions was to build a company with a greater share of the semiconductor test cell market. Acquiring these assets allowed the Company to achieve this goal, as well as expand into additional vertical markets related to printed circuit board test and test fixtures. A key component of the long term growth strategy for Xcerra is to offer differentiated semiconductor test products and services that include providing customers a fully integrated test cell solution directly to their production floor. This strategy allows customers to procure key components of the test cell such as the tester, handler, contactors and interface boards, from a single supplier and to take delivery of a turnkey solution directly into their high volume manufacturing environment. This strategy reduces risk for the customer associated with doing the test cell integration themselves and has the added benefit of accelerating their ability to get new products to market faster.

Xcerra will be the umbrella company for the operating businesses. The established contacts and legal business partners will not change.
