The Bend office of Nanometrics Inc. creates machinery and systems for companies that make semiconductors, LED displays and other atomic-level products.

Among the company's semiconductors clients are Intel Corp., Samsung Electronics and Micron Technology.

In 2006, Nanometrics acquired Bend-based Accent Optical, which also provided equipment used for quality control in high-tech manufacturing plants.

Bruce Rhine, the former chairman and CEO of Accent and current Nanometrics board chairman, said in 2006 the two companies would complement one another, according to a news release announcing the acquisition. While both companies provided quality-control products, they only had a few overlapping customers, according to company statements.
