Amtech has operated its global headquarters in Tempe for more than 30 years, previously occupying a 14,720-square-foot flex industrial building 131 S. Clark Dr. Its new lease moves Amtech into a 6,388-square-foot contemporary office suite at 58 S. River Dr., in the Rio2100 Phase V office building.

Amtech manufactures thermal processing, wafer cleaning and chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) capital equipment and related consumables used in semiconductor, advanced mobility and renewable energy manufacturing applications.

Managing Directors Keith Lammersen and John Pierson from the Phoenix office of JLL represented Amtech in both its Clark Drive building sale and its new Rio2100 lease. Bryan Taute and Will Mask of CBRE represented Rio2100 owner and developer, The Boyer Company, in the new Amtech lease.

“Amtech’s relocation allows it to retain a Tempe presence while right-sizing out of outmoded and underutilized building space, and into modern accommodations that support its current and future needs,” said Lammersen. “It also gives Amtech a stellar new location, surrounded by amenities that will help it attract and retain top talent in today’s competitive hiring environment.”

Rio2100 Phase V totals four stories and 180,000 square feet. It is located within the 60-acre Rio2100 mixed-use development, which includes five office buildings, The Cameron luxury multifamily complex and a Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites hotel.

The project is located at the junction of the Loop 101 and 202 freeways, adjacent to the 1.3 million-square-foot Tempe Marketplace.
