Ltd., a subsidiary of the U.S.-based Global Electronics Service Corporation (GES Inc.), on Friday shipped the first two 200-mm semiconductor processing equipments to Tokyo Electron, a major semiconductor device manufacturer in Asia.
These state-of-the-art semiconductor processing systems were reproduced and enhanced in GES Vietnam manufacturing facilities located in the city’s Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP).
These are also the first semiconductor processing equipments to be manufactured in the country, GES Vietnam said.
The company does not unveil the value of the equipments. Tokyo Electron Ltd. (TEL), one of the world leaders of equipment and processing solutions to the global semiconductor industry, is a long-standing customer/partner of GES.
In September 2010, TEL selected GES as a principal partner to provide turnkey remanufacturing and modification service on TEL equipment. GES provides the total service package on a global operation basis including used equipment purchase, dismantling, packaging, shipping, refurbishment, installation and warranty.
All remanufacturing activities are done at GES manufacturing facilities in the Saigon Hi-Tech Park.
“This achievement along with other successful projects in design, manufacturing and service of Solar, and FPD equipment the company has completed is a strong indicator that GES and its resource in Vietnam can offer the global high tech capital equipment industry a complete package of technical capabilities, quality manufacturing, on time delivery and cost advantages,” said Don Tran, GES chairman and CEO.
GES Vietnam in 2009 opened a US$36 million semiconductor technology center at SHTP in 2009. The center designs, manufactures and upgrades semiconductor equipment to supply semiconductor manufacturers and flat-panel makers.
