EdwardsSolar and semiconductor start-up Solar Semi Engineering (SSE) has completed the acquisition of the business and assets of Edwards’ Chemical Management Europe (CME) division. The deal, the cost of which was not disclosed, will see SSE continue the marketing of Edwards’ CME products along with its own wet process equipment to the solar and semiconductor manufacturing industries.

CME’s area of expertise is in providing automated wet etch process and cleaning equipment and chemical dosing systems for the production of solar and semiconductor wafers. Based in Newhaven, Sussex, UK, the CME division was built out from Edwards’ vacuum pump technology company and was formed following Edwards’ acquisition of the Chemical Management Division of FSI International in 1999.

“I am pleased that the CME business now has additional depth of experience behind it, and I feel sure it will prosper in this format in the years ahead,” commented Mathew Taylor, CEO of Edwards.
