ClassOne Equipment Donation Supports the Nanotechnology Mission at Georgia Tech

Atlanta, GA | Posted on September 6th, 2012

On April 24th, 2009, the Georgia Institute of Technology dedicated the new Marcus Nanotechnology Building; named after its prime sponsor, Mr. Bernie Marcus of the Marcus Foundation. The building is dedicated to exploring new fields of science, technology, and engineering for the benefit of humankind. It is also the headquarters for the Georgia Tech Institute of Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN).

This signature facility embodies Georgia Tech's dedication to improving the human condition through advanced science and engineering.

In support of this mission, ClassOne Equipment, a leading supplier of high quality refurbished equipment to the semiconductor, MEMS, LED, wireless, and emerging technology markets, has made a significant contribution of key process equipment.

"We appreciate this significant contribution of equipment that is now contained within the Marcus Organic and Inorganic Cleanroom Laboratories," said Mark Allen, executive director of the IEN.
