Tool Order: Surfect Technologies gets first solar equipment order


Surfect Technologies, Inc. has said that it has received a Letter of
Intent from a Texas-based solar company for up to ten of its ‘Solargy’
single cell electrolytic plating tools. This is the first order the
company has received from a solar manufacturer. The tools are expected
to be delivered throughout 2008 and 2009, the company said.

“This first customer Letter of Intent is a huge milestone for us”, said
Steve Anderson, CEO of Surfect. “We are currently in various stages of
dialogue with a number of the world’s leading solar companies regarding
deployments of our process tool systems. We expect this to be the first
of many new orders from the rapidly growing solar industry. Our
development focus is to advance the solar manufacturing metallization
technology and provide product differentiation while also providing
cost reduction critical to our customers’ success.”

Surfect claims that its tool and process technology will improve manufacturing speeds and yields for solar cell manufacturers.
