Integrated Materials, Inc (IMI) known for its ‘SiFusion’ processes for manufacturing polysilicon-based furnaceware has been acquired for an undisclosed sum by Ferrotec. The SiFusion materials range is expected to complement Ferrotec's existing line of advanced materials for semiconductor manufacturing that include fabricated quartzware and advanced ceramics.

"As Ferrotec continues to expand our line of advanced materials for semiconductor manufacturing, we maintain our commitment to precision manufacturing and process technologies that improve our customers' products and yields," said Eiji Miyanaga, president and CEO of Ferrotec (USA) Corporation. "With the addition of SiFusion patented furnaceware technology to our line of high-purity advanced materials for semiconductor manufacturing, we expect to significantly expand the adoption of this unique solution."

Dan Rubin, President and CEO of Integrated Materials noted that the small firm had been struggling with resource and infrastructure issues during the latest semiconductor downturn, which hampered growth, especially as a releatively new company.
