Our Company

Wafer Process Systems Inc. was established in 1983 by current CEO and President Douglas H. Caldwell out of necessity to satisfy the industry needs for in field service and wet process equipment support. The company originated mainly as a service and support organization for local Silicon Valley customers. As our customer’s needs for equipment service, modifications driven by process changes and new equipment requirements increased Wafer Process Systems Inc. created a full time engineering team to support the manufacturing.

Mr. Caldwell started the company after a four year tenure with Semifab Inc. where he was responsible for customer service and equipment support for North America. His responsibilities involved equipment installations, start ups, maintenance and in field modifications. At that time Semifab Inc. was one of the industries largest manufacturer of wet chemical process equipment and laminar flow hoods for the semiconductor and biomedical industries. Prior to working at Semifab Inc. Mr. Caldwell worked for Microair Inc. for a period of four years where his responsibilities ranged from manufacturing to final test and quality assurance. The exodus of Microair's engineering manager and sales manager, who left to start Semifab Inc. was the driving force which lead to Mr. Caldwell into joining Semifab Inc.

Mr. Schmitz joined Wafer Process Systems Inc. after the company was in operation for a period of six months. Prior to Mr. Schmitz joining Wafer Process Systems Inc. he worked for Semifab Inc. in their engineering department for a period of three years where he was responsible for design and generating documentation for manufacturing. Prior to his tenure with Semifab Inc. he had been employed by Santa Clara Plastics Inc., currently know as SCP Global, for a period of three years in the engineering department where his responsibilities where generating production drawings used in the manufacturing of Wet Chemical Process Equipment.
