Veeco Opened New Technology Center in Taiwan

Aug 31, 2011 According to official press release, Veeco Instruments Inc. has opened a new Taiwan Technology Center (TTC)  in Hsinchu, Taiwan  on August 30, 2011. Veeco is one of  the leading suppliers of metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) equipment used to make light emitting diodes (LEDs). The new technology center aims to provide process support for the rapidly growing LED industry. Several of Veeco's key customers in Greater China and important local government officials were among Veeco's honored guests at the opening ceremony.

John R. Peeler, Veeco's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our goal is to ensure customer collaboration and enhanced responsiveness to build a long-term strategic partnership with our key Greater China customers. We selected Hsinchu as the location for our new Taiwan Technology Center because of its strong history of LED industry leadership and the large number of local LED manufacturers. This center provides excellent access to some of the world's best technology and engineering talent, and is strategically located for convenient access by other Asian customers."
Peter Collingwood, Veeco's Senior Vice President, Sales & Service, added, "By opening the TTC, we are bringing Veeco's leading technology closer to our customers. While we have always supported this region around the clock, this new site takes our commitment to the next level. We are able to easily demonstrate our latest technology and newest MOCVD systems to help our customers to ramp their production of high efficiency, low cost LEDs."

The TTC site, which has approximately 40 Veeco employees, is equipped to conduct process demonstrations, arrange rapid start programs to transfer best known methods (BKM), provide early access to evaluate system upgrades, and support joint technology development programs. The TTC is equipped with Veeco's marketing-leading MOCVD systems, including a multi-chamber TurboDisc(R) MaxBright(TM) MOCVD System.

Justin K. Wang, General Manager, Veeco Greater China region, added, "We are committed to satisfying our customers and helping them to accelerate their production. Our goal is to be the preferred supplier with the best products on the market, as well as having a local presence to expedite our customers' time-to-market."

According to Mr. Peeler, "The TTC is the newest part of our significant expansion in Asia that we announced last fall. Veeco will invest over $30 million to dramatically expand our Asia footprint to help customers continue to accelerate the pace of adoption of LEDs for consumer electronics and solid-state lighting, including additional new R&D/demo and process support sites in Shanghai, China (opened May 2011) and Seoul, Korea (opening in 2012)."
