Amtech Systems has received a further $4.3 million in orders to ship in
its fiscal 2008. Since October 1st 2007, Amtech has received solar
orders totaling approximately $33 million, the company said. The new
orders were placed with its subsidiary Tempress Systems for diffusion
processing systems, and are from two new German customers and a
follow-on order from an existing customer based in the Asia-Pacific
“These new solar orders reflect our continued success in penetrating
the Asian-Pacific market and expand our worldwide solar customer base.
The orders from Germany provide us with a foothold into the European
market by placing our diffusion processing systems, for the first time,
with two major German solar cell manufacturers,” said J.S. Whang,
