Entegris to create advanced nanotech R&D and manufacturing center in New England
May 02, 2012 // Julien Happich
After a worldwide search for a premier location, Entegris announced its plans to create the Entegris i2M Center for Advanced Materials Science ("i2M Center") in Bedford, Massachusetts.
The i2M Center will be one of New England's leading R&D and manufacturing centers for filtration media, electrostatic clamps (E-Chucks) and proprietary advanced, low-temperature coatings. These technologies are needed to develop critical components used in the world’s most demanding and stringent
semiconductor manufacturing environments. Entegris’ products, which control nano-level contamination so small it is measured in widths of atoms, enable the production of advanced semiconductor devices and other electronics used in computers, smartphones, TVs and cars.
“As next-generation devices become smaller, more powerful, and consume less energy, the technologies used to make these devices are pushing the boundaries of physics,” said Gideon Argov, president and chief executive officer of Entegris. “To support the manufacturing of these devices, the Entegris i2M Center will focus on solving the most difficult purification, process control, and material protection challenges, something only a handful of companies in the world can do.”
Entegris recently purchased land and an existing 80,000 square foot building at 9 Crosby Drive in Bedford, Massachusetts to house the i2M Center. It expects to invest approximately $45 to $50 million in building infrastructure upgrades and equipment over the next two years. Entegris expects the first phase of the Center to be operational in early 2013. The i2M Center will consolidate certain existing Entegris operations in Massachusetts and house approximately 100 professional and skilled employees who will transfer from those existing sites. The company also plans to add 10 new engineering and development positions specializing in membrane science and E-Chucks.
