SPTS' president & COO elected to SEMI's board

Plasma etch, deposition and thermal wafer processing equipment maker SPTS Technologies Ltd of Newport, Wales, UK says that its president & chief operating officer Kevin Crofton has been elected to the board of directors of global industry association SEMI International (which serves the nano- and micro-electronic manufacturing supply chains). His appointment, along with three other newly elected directors, was announced by SEMI at the annual SEMI membership meeting during the SEMICON West 2014 trade show in San Francisco (8-10 July).

“Electronics touch so many aspects of our lives each day – from the ways we communicate, the cars we drive, how we monitor our health and keep our families safe,” says Crofton. “The companies and people SEMI represents are the innovators, technologist and manufacturers who enable these smarter, faster, more powerful and more affordable electronic products and devices. I am honoured to be elected to this position and have the opportunity to serve with my esteemed colleagues to further initiatives that will help support, define and strengthen our industry as we continue to grow and expand into new areas,” he adds.

“The SEMI board reflects the regional and market diversity of our worldwide membership,” comments SEMI’s president & CEO Denny McGuirk.

SEMI’s 20 voting directors and 11 emeritus directors represent companies from Europe, China, Japan, Korea, North America, and Taiwan, reflecting the global scope of the association’s activities. SEMI directors are elected by the general membership as voting members of the board and can serve a total of five two-year terms.
