Western Electric"Clean Room"1955

AC Corporation’s experience with Cleanroom Technology began in 1954 with Western Electric Company in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It was the first known production-size cleanroom in the world.

The gyroscopes being supplied to the Nike missile program by Western Electric were being rejected at a rate of 99 out of 100, with each gyroscope costing $20,000. The culprit was identified to be dust. AC Corporation was commissioned to design and install this “dust-free” room. After the cleanroom was completed, Western Electric’s rejection dropped to one out of 100.
