Thermco Systems (a division of Tetreon Technologies Ltd of Washington, West Sussex, UK) has announced a strategic partnership with Hitachi Kokusai Semiconductor Europe GmbH of Erkrath, Germany, strengthening its position as a manufacturer of horizontal thermal reactors.

Founded in 1962 and having one of the largest installed bases of over 30,000 horizontal tubes worldwide, Thermco Systems manufactures atmospheric and LPCVD furnaces for the semiconductor, MEMS, nanotechnology, LED and photovoltaic markets.

The new partnership makes available to Thermco’s European customers the feature-rich ‘Vertron Revolution’ vertical thermal reactors for the first time. Hitachi Kokusai Semiconductor Europe’s products will complement Thermco’s established range of horizontal thermal reactors, CSD epitaxy reactors, chemical wet benches and next generation control systems, offering a broader range of high-tech solutions.

Thermco’s European customers will now also have access to the new Hitachi Kokusai plasma batch ashing tool, 4-point probe and other key pieces of metrology equipment. In parallel, Hitachi Kokusai and Thermco Systems will also start working on a program of joint technical product developments.

“Throughout our 56-year history Thermco has offered customers the best in terms of quality engineering, reinforced by the highest level of technical competency and end-to-end customer support,” says Thermco Systems’ managing director Andrew Conning. “Our partnership with Hitachi Kokusai now enables us to extend our proposition to existing and new customers with a range of complementary quality products backed by our strong service proposition,” he adds.

“We have built a strong affiliation and together we look forward to developing our strategic relationship in a variety of areas to offer solutions tailored to meet our European customer needs,” comments Hitachi Kokusai European president Yoshio Kitahara.
