MRSI was founded in Massachusetts in 1984 with the goal of providing automated solutions for dispense and assembly of microelectronic devices. The Company was primarily focused on servicing the hybrid microelectronics industry through the design and manufacturing of precision die bonding and dispensing equipment. In 2002 the Company was acquired by the public company Newport Corporation. In 2014 the management executed an MBO from Newport.


MRSI Systems is a leading manufacturer of fully automated, high-precision, high-speed die bonding and epoxy dispensing systems. We enable customers to optimize the performance of their process including yield, throughput, and uptime by building systems that use our unique expertise. In summary, this includes our proprietary software, proven hardware, deep process knowledge, state-of-the-art manufacturing, and a world-class customer service team. MRSI’s systems are built on common platforms that can be configured to meet specific customer requirements. These platforms are designed to be scalable for R&D prototyping, pilot production and high volume manufacturing. Our solutions deliver the best financial returns in the industry while integrating seamlessly into our customer’s production. Markets include Telecom/Datacom (Data Center), Aerospace & Defense, Medical Devices, Computers and Peripherals, and Industrial. Since 1984, we have been recognized as the standard of the industry, delivering our solutions to leading optoelectronic and microelectronic customers worldwide.

Our headquarters is located in a 50,000 square foot building in Billerica, MA in the greater Boston area. MRSI’s sales are supported by a global network of direct service and support professionals located in China, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Israel, Europe, United Kingdom, and the United States.


The Company’s die bonding and dispense systems share a robust and common platform as the cornerstone for every product shipped to customers. However, MRSI configures each system to unique production requirements by incorporating a wide range of optional features based upon customer specifications. This architecture allows MRSI to deliver highly flexible systems capable of handling customers’ evolving die bonding and dispensing requirements. A key competitive advantage for the Company is its ability to create derivatives of existing systems to serve new markets and applications.

New Markets: MRSI will launch a new platform family, once it has validated a precision die bonding need, not currently met by the industry. MRSI’s product development roadmap spans a range of initiatives aimed at solidifying the Company’s position in the precision assembly market, while expanding its opportunity set by introducing systems capable of addressing various emerging markets. This roadmap will include configurations for more dedicated, higher throughput applications. MRSI’s tools leverage a well-defined set of core competencies in system design, software development, machine vision, motion control, industrial automation and optical design expertise.
