Applied Energy Systems breaking ground on new ultra-high-purity gas system manufacturing plant

On 5 October, Applied Energy Systems Inc, which makes ultra-high-purity gas source and distribution systems, will break ground on its new Semiconductor Equipment Manufacturing and Technology (SEMAT) Center in order to expand its current operation Malvern, PA, USA, where the firm has resided since 1985.

The new center will manufacture the next generation of gas source and distribution systems for worldwide customers of Applied Energy Systems and its SEMI-GAS Systems Division. The 16,000ft2 two-storey facility, adjacent to the current facility, will house a new Class 100 cleanroom and engineering center as well as incorporate ‘green’ materials into the construction, including LED lighting and solar panels.

The projected $2.5m building will not only facilitate the expansion of Applied Energy Systems but also increase the growth of business in the greater Philadelphia area, says the firm. “This new building will usher in a new chapter in the company’s life by providing the extra space we need to develop better products and more jobs in the community,” says president Steve Buerkel. “The construction of the new facility will also help generate jobs in the area during this downturned economy,” he adds.
