SAFCSAFC Hitech has opened a new $9 million, 5,000 square foot cleanroom, located on the Company's Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, campus that allows improved in-house trace metals analysis and clean and fill operations for its high-purity electronic materials. The project is part of a wider plan to expand its manufacturing and services business in key regions of the world for supplying the semiconductor industry.  "One of SAFC's primary business objectives is to continue to build the SAFC Hitech segment into a global leader in the supply of ultra-pure, high quality materials and technical solutions to the electronics industries we serve," said SAFC President, Frank Wicks. "As the demand for new and increasingly efficient materials continues to grow, so does the need to attain higher and higher levels of quality and dependability from our products."

"This cleanroom investment complements existing manufacturing and extensive research and development sites at Sheboygan and will help us to achieve our objectives, essentially providing a 'one stop shop' for manufacturing, analysis and packaging. As a result, SAFC Hitech customers will benefit from high-quality products that meet or exceed specifications, feature significantly reduced quality variations and are delivered on time," added Wicks.

"We expect to be able to use the construction and operational experiences gained from Sheboygan and apply it to future, similar developments serving other markets, thereby expanding our global presence using tried and tested methodologies," commented Geoff Irvine, Director, Commercial Development & Marketing, SAFC Hitech.
