Semilab Snaps Up Two Firms

Semilab, a Natick, MA-based maker of metrology tools for characterizing materials in semiconductor manufacturing and R&D, announced today that it has purchased two smaller cousins: Advanced Metrology Systems, also of Natick, and Billerica, MA-based QC Solutions. AMS makes technology for studying 3D structures, while QC Solutions makes non-contact systems for testing the electrical properties of silicon wafers. Both companies will become part of a new organization called Semilab AMS. Semilab says the acquisitions were all-cash transactions, but didn’t say how much it paid.
