One of Scotland’s premier technology companies, Lanarkshire-headquartered Ichor Systems, has appointed James Campbell as its new Customer Support Manager. His role will focus on supporting new and legacy customers during the company’s current period of expansion.
Ichor Systems is part of NASDAQ listed Ichor Systems Inc, a major global player in the supply of gas, chemical and liquid delivery systems to key manufacturers within the semiconductor sector.
The company’s 46 staff – mostly highly-skilled engineers – operate from a state-of-the-art European headquarters facility in Hamilton International Technology Park, and have an innovative approach to reducing technical obsolescence in engineering equipment.
An Armed Forces veteran with 12 years’ service with the Royal Air Force (RAF); James started his career in the field of semiconductors in 1995 with Integrated Solutions, where he specialised in lithography. He then spent 20 years with Tokyo Electron, splitting his time between Livingstone and Grenoble in France as a Senior Service Engineer and latterly Product Sales Engineer.
He said: “I’ve spent most of my career working in semiconductors, and it’s heartening to see Ichor systems uncovering new and innovative ways to expand the market through finding engineering solutions to the perennial problem of obsolescence in manufacturing. It’s an exciting time to have joined such a vibrant business.”
John Spence, who leads the Lanarkshire-based company, said “As well as semiconductor equipment manufacture and refurbishment, we are looking at rolling out innovative engineering solutions to a much wider range of sectors targeting, in effect, the entire range of UK and European manufacture.
“During this time of expansion and sector transformation, James’s role in ensuring customers new and old are supported will be critical and I look forward to working with him.”
