Nor-Cal Products (“Nor-Cal”) is a leading manufacturer of highly engineered stainless steel vacuum chambers and related components for the semiconductor industry. For nearly 50 years, the Yreka, California-based Company has provided innovative products and solutions to the high vacuum and ultra-high vacuum markets. The Company maintains a global footprint, with manufacturing facilities in Yreka, California and Vietnam, and sales and support offices in Santa Clara, California, Singapore, and South Korea. Nor-Cal serves a diverse customer base, from leading multi-national OEMs of semiconductor and compound semiconductor tools to prominent national laboratories and universities.
Nor-Cal was family owned since its founding in 1962. In 2010, Endeavour invested in Nor-Cal in conjunction with Tom Deany, President and CEO, and certain key managers to provide liquidity to existing shareholders and to continue to build Nor-Cal into the leader in stainless steel, enabling vacuum technology.
In 2017, Nor-Cal management and Endeavour sold the business to a strategic buyer looking to build a US-based vacuum technology platform.
