MESA, AZ – Benchmark Electronics opened its new Precision Technologies facility in Mesa, Arizona, providing a range of key engineering services and manufacturing solutions, particularly in semiconductor capital equipment.
Benchmark Electronics is a global provider of engineering, design and manufacturing services. The facility is 64,000 square feet; in addition, the company intends to invest $20 million in capabilities and technology at the new facility and hire 100 people to provide support as the company moves closer to its customers.
“We are proud to celebrate the grand opening of Benchmark’s new facility alongside Arizona’s best and brightest technology leaders. Since joining the state’s thriving tech community, Benchmark has been an incredible partner, creating skilled jobs and furthering Arizona’s reputation for innovation,” said Governor Katie Hobbs.
The grand opening was attended by Governor Katie Hobbs, Mesa Mayor John Giles, Arizona Commerce Authority President and CEO Sandra Watson, as well as numerous Benchmark customers and Arizona officials from all sectors of technology and economic development.
“Benchmark is a key solutions partner to the capital equipment market worldwide and this new facility will allow us to support our customers in the U.S. and around the world with next-generation manufacturing and engineered solutions,” said Jeff Benck, Benchmark President and CEO.

The facility significantly expands existing cleanroom capacity in its Precision Technologies group, with additional opportunities for vertical integration of key processes. These processes will include unique metal joining applications such as TIG and electron beam welding, precision cleaning and other chemical finishing.

In addition to its global headquarters in Tempe, the company now has three other manufacturing facilities in the Valley: Phoenix, Tempe and, now, Mesa.
The company’s manufacturing services and global presence are closely aligned with the geographic needs of the semiconductor industry and facilitate customers’ ability to meet growing demand. Benchmark’s strategic investments in facilities, capabilities and technologies also enhance engineering and manufacturing solutions close to the point of consumption for the U.S., European and Asian markets.
