Zygo Corporation's Optics business segment Awarded Follow-On Medical Contract of $10.2 Million
MIDDLEFIELD, CT, Jun 29, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- Zygo Corporation (NASDAQ: ZIGO), a leading worldwide optical metrology supplier, today announced that it has been awarded a $10.2 million follow-on medical assembly contract that will ship over the next 18 months. This brings the Corporation's awards for medical device contracts in fiscal 2007 to $27.0 million compared to $10.0 million in fiscal 2006. Part of an overall strategic initiative to grow the Corporation's electro-optics contract manufacturing business, medical devices now represents one of the fastest growing areas of the Zygo Corporation. The initiative, started in 2005, leverages a wide range of existing core capabilities and remains a strong area of market focus as the division continues to expand its Tucson, Arizona, and Costa Mesa, California operations.

John Stack, ZYGO's Optics business segment President, made the following comments: "Over the past year, ZYGO has made several strategic commitments to support our rapidly growing base of medical customers, such as the successful FDA certification requirement (ISO 13485:2003) of our Tucson, Arizona electro-optics production facility. This, in conjunction with our ongoing development of core strengths in high precision alignment, metrology, and world-class tooling design, has created significant differentiation not easily replicated throughout the industry." Mr. Stack also commented, "The increased demand for high precision medical devices continues to be driven by an aging population and the willingness of consumers to pay a premium for elective procedures that improve quality of life. Given these factors we feel the opportunities for growth in the medical market are very good and will continue to provide a strong focus for the division."

Zygo Corporation (NASDAQ: ZIGO), headquartered in Middlefield, Connecticut, is a worldwide supplier of optical metrology instruments, precision optics, and electro-optical design and manufacturing services, serving customers in the semiconductor capital equipment and industrial markets.
