Our History

THINFILMS Inc. began as “Thin Films Services” in 1988 and was incorporated in 1990. The founder, Arshad Mumtaz, received his MSEE from the New Jersey Institute of Technology in 1975 while working as a graduate assistant on sputtered thin films under Dr. Roy H. Cornely. Arshad then began his career in thin films with his first job offer from Mr. Richard Denton of Denton Vacuum. He continued his work in the area of thin film equipment and thin film processing at Schott Optical Glass, Materials Research Corporation (MRC), Perkin Elmer Corporation and Siemens Microwave Semiconductor Corporation.

THINFILMS, Inc. was subsequently started by a home built sputtering system with the help and advice of Mr. Bernie Reisner and other friends from the years at MRC. The business continues to flourish with a steady stream of customers including those from the very first years. Currently, THINFILMS, Inc. consists of a very dedicated team working to fulfill all customer thin film requirements with quality work and a prompt turnaround time.
