Australian Vacuum Services
We would like to introduce you new PREVAC partner in the Australian market.
Prevac has many global distributors which include our friends on the opposite side of the planet - Australian Vacuum Services (AVS) headed up by Andrew Taylor and Laurens Willems. They both have a vast knowledge of ultra high vacuum and nanotechnology experience.
Andy started as an Edwards High vacuum apprentice at 16 and has run successful vacuum companies in the UK. Laurens is PhD qualified and has worked on many projects, including complex diamond growth, and authored numerous white papers. Between the two of them, they have over 60 years of experience in the vacuum technology field. AVS was formed as a specialty firm to cater to both scientific and academic sectors and has been trading for over a year - coming through these Covid times with some solid thin film system orders.
The quantum and electronics research areas are fast growing as a result of investment from the likes of Google and Microsoft, and now many of the world’s leading researchers are based Down Under. The AVS range caters to various thin film systems from deposition through to lithography. They also supply a wide range of UHV parts from windows to pumps, gauges, and fittings. They even repair vacuum pumps. At weekends they can be spotted bushwalking, hunting for snakes, or mountain biking in the Blue Mountains.
