Ferrotec, the U.S.-based global supplier of materials, components, and precision system solutions, has purchased Integrated Materials. The sale includes the acquisition of Integrated Materials’ patented SiFusion process for manufacturing polysilicon furnaceware.
“As Ferrotec continues to expand our line of advanced materials for semiconductor manufacturing, we maintain our commitment to precision manufacturing and process technologies that improve our customers’ products and yields,” said Eiji Miyanaga, president and CEO of Ferrotec. “With the addition of SiFusion patented furnaceware technology to our line of high-purity advanced materials for semiconductor manufacturing, we expect to significantly expand the adoption of this unique solution.”
“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. “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.”
