Ultratech opens Singapore International Operations manufacturing facility

Lithography and laser-processing system maker Ultratech Inc of San Jose, CA, USA has officially opened its new manufacturing facility in Singapore, attended by about 200 guests (including Singapore Economic Development Board chairman Leo Yip) and followed by a plant tour. The firm plans to spend more than $125m over the next several years in support of its Singapore International Operations.

“After an extensive study in the Asia Pacific region, we selected Singapore for several business reasons including being conveniently located to Ultratech’s served markets,” says chairman & CEO Arthur W. Zafiropoulo. “We expect 75% of our business to be located in the Pacific region and, with this new facility in Singapore, Ultratech can better serve customers from Thailand to Taiwan,” he adds.

The manufacturing facility will be capable of producing more than 100 lithography steppers annually for the advanced packaging and the high-brightness LED (HB-LED) markets. Along with providing engineering support in Singapore, the facility will also serve as headquarters for Ultratech’s global service operations and Asia Pacific sales organization. The firm plans to start manufacturing lithography systems at its Singapore facility in late 2010, with the first tool shipments to customers scheduled for first-quarter 2011.
