Ferrotec acquires Integrated Materials and expand its lines of advanced materials
July 13, 2010 // Julien Happich
Ferrotec Corporation, a global supplier of materials, components, and precision system solutions, has expanded its offering of advanced materials for semiconductor manufacturing with the purchase of Integrated Materials and its patented SiFusion process for manufacturing poly silicon furnaceware.
SiFusion materials will complement Ferrotec's existing line of advanced materials for semiconductor manufacturing that include fabricated quartzware and advanced ceramics. SiFusion technology overcomes the yield, cost and environmental barriers associated with traditional semiconductor thermal process consumables.
Using the same material as the wafer itself, SiFusion's pure poly silicon furnaceware reduces exposure to process contaminants. By reducing process contaminants, SiFusion significantly cuts requirements for system maintenance and consumable replacement, lowering overall total cost of ownership while improving yields.
"Our patented SiFusion process for fabricating poly silicon furnaceware has delivered significant value to our growing list of satisfied customers, but as a start-up we have wrestled with resource and infrastructure challenges that have limited our ability to grow," said Dan Rubin, president and CEO of Integrated Materials, Inc.
"With Ferrotec's extensive material fabrication infrastructure, its strong global footprint and its reputation with the world's leading semiconductor manufacturers and OEMs, we expect significant acceleration for our market acceptance and growth."
The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
