Anadigics appoints former Maxim fab manager as senior VP of operations

Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA, which manufactures GaAs-based wireless and broadband communications components and modules, has recruited John Coleman as senior vice president of operations.

Coleman joins from Maxim Integrated Products, where he was managing director of their facility in San Antonio, TX, responsible for bringing online its newest BiCMOS silicon wafer fab in under six months. Previously, he held leadership positions at companies including Atmel Corp and STMicroelectronics.

“John’s extensive past experience of working in high-volume analog IC operations will provide valuable insights for Anadigics,” says Dr Bami Bastani, president and CEO. “Anadigics has been experiencing tremendous growth and I look forward to bringing my experiences to Anadigics as we continue to expand our operations in the US and overseas,” adds Coleman. On 9 July Anadigics broke ground on construction of its second 6” GaAs fab (sited in the Kunshan New and Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone, China), which should start operation by Q1/2009 and ultimately double Anadigics’ fab capacity.

Coleman holds a Masters of Science in Physics from the University of North Carolina and a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix.
