    Fit-Line Global to be featured at SEMICON West 2019 with Reimagined Global Brand and Continued Commitment to Quality

    Over the past six months we have gone through some major changes at Fit-Line Global®. From a complete company rebrand and announcing the development of high purity Semi C90-1015 compliant PFA fittings to establishing a pro-active environmental compliance process and hiring new team members, we have been working nonstop to bring our customers the best products, delivered on-time, and with the Fit-Line Global seal of quality.

    For over two decades, we’ve engineered and manufactured the Semiconductor industry’s most popular PFA and PVDF fitting configurations. From standard fittings to patented tube flaring systems and torque wrenches, to custom designs that are developed, manufactured and tested in our facility, we have the expertise and the know-how to ensure our customers get the most reliable and dependable components delivered on time. Our process is simple, but the key to everything. We leverage demand forecasting, inventory control, and how information flows between raw material suppliers and customers to ensure on-time delivery.

    That’s why we’re excited to be showcasing our reimagined global brand and process at SEMICON West, July 9-11, 2019 in booth #1950 in the South Hall at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.

  • Nima Taghavi - Quality Assurance Manager Nima A. Taghavi Joins the Fit-Line Family as Manager of Quality Assurance

    The team at Fit-Line Global™ is like a big family – and our family just grew in size with the addition of Nima Taghavi as the new Manager of Quality Assurance. The announcement of Nima’s hiring was made by George Alvarado at a recent staff meeting.

    As a leading component supplier for high-purity fluid processing applications, it is imperative that the products we make and ship around the world are of the highest quality. That process is a complex one that is only successful when everyone is doing their part. Nima will work to systematically improve our business and manufacturing processes, optimizing throughput, and minimizing waste through LEAN and Six Sigma best practices. He will apply this approach to the continual improvement of our ISO9001/2015 Business Management System.

    With his bachelor’s degree in Manufacturing Engineering from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona and experience in the plastic injection molding industry, Nima will help us take our quality to the next level.
    In addition, he will improve our pro-active environmental compliance process that actively engages our partners to provide a full material disclosure or FMD, which enables them to know the exact content of their products. This data will enable us to ensure compliance with local, state, national, and international regulations, while contributing to sound environmental protection on a global level.

    Nima is excited to be a part of the dynamic team here at Fit-Line Global – working with a balance of seasoned professionals and bright new minds. He looks forward to helping the company expand its capabilities and push the boundaries of the industry’s innovation, thus enabling the advancement of many technologies including artificial intelligence.

  • Innovation is Key to Success

    INNOVATION IS KEY TO SUCCESS

    At Fit-Line Global we constantly push ourselves to develop the highest-quality products, achieve efficient processes, and meet the evolving needs of our customers.

    For over twenty-five years, we’ve worked tirelessly to understand those customers’ needs and develop solutions to support their KPIs and “go-to-market” strategies. That’s why we expect our associates to be innovative. We want to find ways through our business practices to change the way we do business. That’s the culture we are trying to drive. Where everyone feels free to express themselves in areas that bring out the best in Fit-Line Global.

    We believe in the importance of innovation and the spirit of human ingenuity. By supporting innovation to push the limits of what can be done, we enable advancements in technology on a global scale.

    In 2015, SEMI published the new industry standard for measuring the amount of iron contamination in PFA materials (tube, valves, fittings, resin) used in the semiconductor industry for liquid chemical distribution. And, in response to that, we made several capital equipment investments to push the boundaries of what we can offer our clients.

    In 2018, only two and half years after the new standard was published, we successfully announced that our innovative manufacturing process was successful in meeting the SEMI C90-1015 standard. Meeting the standard has officially made Fit-Line Global the first organization in the world to become C90-1015 compliant for PFA fittings. The announcement was recently posted to the SEMI website (http://www1.semi.org/en/press/fit-line-global-becomes-first-develop-high-purity-semi-c90-1015-compliant-pfa-fittings)

    Our goal is to have a culture around innovation where every associate feels like their efforts help to make Fit-Line Global a better place and help make our customers more successful. That way they really feel engaged in what they’re doing every day and what they do matters.

  • First to Develop High Purity Semi C90-1015 Compliant PFA Fittings

    Fit-Line Global becomes first to develop High Purity SEMI C90-1015 Compliant PFA fittings

    There are certain moments in an organization’s history that define the company and the path it is on. Monumental moments of accomplishment and innovation. At Fit-Line Global, one of those moments has occurred.

    Fit-Line Global is proud to announce that it has become the first high-purity component supplier to become SEMI C90-1015 compliant.

    SEMI C90-1015 is the new industry standard for measuring and limiting the amount of Iron contamination in PFA materials used in the semiconductor industry for liquid chemical distribution systems. The company achieved this monumental development through its proprietary manufacturing process, which includes injection molding, a 5-stage cleaning process, and packaging in a Class 1000 Clean Room.

    Several PFA fitting samples were tested by Balazs™ NanoAnalysis in accordance with the SEMI C90-1015 specification. All samples passed well below the limits of 5 µg/m².

    “At Fit-Line Global, we are committed to meet the future needs of industry leading integrated device manufacturers that require consistency and quality control of all the products for high-volume manufacturing use,” said George Alvarado, vice president and general manager. “Becoming C90 compliant was achieved through a significant capital equipment investment by the company and amazing ingenuity from our team of engineers and process technicians. This is a proud and momentous achievement for Fit-Line Global and the semiconductor industry.”

    The new industry standard for measuring the amount of Iron contamination in PFA materials (tube, valves, fittings, resin) used in the semiconductor industry for liquid chemical distribution was first published by the SEMI organization in 2015.

  • FLG Brand Fit-Line Inc. rebrands to become Fit-Line Global

    Fit-Line Inc. Rebrands with New Name, Logo, and Brand Identity

    Change is good. Change is important. Change helps to companies evolve to become something bigger and better than once perceived. For us at Fit-Line Inc., change has come in the form of a new brand identity, including a modernized name, logo, website, and refreshed look and feel for all branded experiences. We have officially changed our name to Fit-Line Global™. The name change is a result of an extensive rebranding effort designed to mirror the success and impact of our organization.

    “Fit-Line is an instantly recognized name in the semiconductor industry; however, the brand’s identity hasn’t evolved over the past 25 years,” said Frank Hayes, president and founder. “To thrive in this industry, product delivery and quality is imperative. We wanted to modernize and elevate the brand in a design that is simple, yet unquestionably Fit-Line.”

    The name Fit-Line Global takes into consideration our many partners and wide distribution network located in many countries around the world. Designing a brand mark to work seamlessly across all platforms and in multiple countries, while preserving the history was key to the overall effort. The new website (fit-lineglobal.com) is built on the latest responsive technology and is designed to be user-friendly and tell the complete story of Fit-Line Global’s history, product offerings, and service to the semiconductor industry.

    The success we have had during our 25-year history can be attributed to our commitment to quality products, delivered with the fastest lead time in the industry, and at a fair price. With these new changes, we bring forth a renewed and expanded commitment to our customers and relationship. In the spirit of rebranding, we will continue to bridge new gaps while simultaneously expanding our resources and capabilities across the semiconductor industry.

    The new brand identity is now live and will be integrated in all products, systems, and experiences over the next 60 days.
