Riber builds business in China

Riber S.A. of Bezons, France says it received an order at the end of September from a Chinese institute for two Compact21, molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), research systems. The new systems will be used to research a new generation compound semiconductors, says the firm.

Riber did not disclose the customer’s name, but did say that it already had several Riber systems, and that it wished to strengthen its research and development capacities to meet rising demand for studies in China.

Having sold about forty systems to date in China, Riber says it sees significant development of MBE in the region. Its penetration of the China market, with 70% of MBE systems installed in the country, was further reinforced by the opening in April 2009 of a permanent sales office in Shanghai. Riber adds that it intends to continue increasing sales in China by stepping up its local workforce, especially in technical support.
