Photomask technology has been used since manufacture began of the earliest semi-conductors over 40 years ago. It was then that Compugraphics made its first photomask in Aldershot, UK. In 1970 the company moved north to Glenrothes, Scotland, to be closer to the multitude of technology companies emerging in the area that became known as "Silicon Glen". Compugraphics has continued to expand and is today one of the most highly regarded and established Photomask names in Europe and USA. It has an experienced team of photomask professionals to rival any of its global competitors with similar sized operations in Glenrothes, Scotland and Los Gatos, California.
