SSEC adds industry veterans to boost sales force in critical regions

Solid State Equipment LLC (SSEC) of Horsham, PA, USA, which makes single-wafer wet processing equipment, has added two industry sales veterans to fuel its growth in currently under-addressed markets. Jim Murphy and Kojitsu Goto (KG) will assist in expanding SSEC's presence in their respective areas.

Murphy will be responsible for Strategic Accounts on a global basis, including coordinating the early adaption of 450mm silicon wafers. “Jim comes with extensive industry experience and has a solid track record of accomplishment,” says John Voltz, director of Field Operations. “We expect Jim to expand our presence at IDMs (integrated device manufacturers) with the same success we are enjoying with foundries,” he adds.

Goto is assuming the role of Country Manager for Japan and Korea – markets that represent an high percentage of capital expenditures for the types of equipment manufactured at SSEC. “These are challenging and highly competitive markets with large global companies and small local companies vying for the business,” says Voltz. “Considering KG's past success, we are confident his perseverance will get us traction in these markets to help us grow,” he adds.

“They [Murphy and Goto] add bench strength to our existing sales force and support the increasing number of customers that are choosing SSEC,” Voltz concludes.
