CS Clean Systems and centrotherm clean solutions to merge in first-quarter 2016

CS Clean Systems AG of Ismaning (near Munich) and centrotherm clean solutions GmbH & Co KG of Blaubeuren, Germany (both specialists in the treatment of exhaust gases in semiconductor and solar cell production processes) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in early October, in which they agreed on a roadmap to cooperate and merge their operational units and technologies. The firms' existing sites are intended to continue as competence centers for the specific exhaust gas purification technologies. The initial integration process between the companies was begun at the end of October by a joint team workshop, with international employees and partners in attendance. The merger under company law is planned for completion first-quarter 2016.

Pending finalization of customary merger and acquisition (M&A) procedures, the two firms plan to combine their products and technologies, and carry out global marketing activities through a shared sales channel. The firms say that the collaboration represents a synergy of two technology leaders in exhaust gas purification, both with operations around the world. They add that, as a company focused 100% on exhaust gas purification, the merger will result in a one-stop solution provider with the ability to offer objective solutions to customer requirements based on an expanded suite of scrubbing technologies.

Founded in Munich in 1986 as a private stock corporation, CS Clean Systems manufactures exhaust gas cleaning equipment for the semiconductor and solar industries. The dimensions and configuration of its units are tailored for individual customers, and all products are designed for lifelong serviceability and reuse. Hazardous waste gases are removed from the production process through specialist technology that makes use of dry absorption (CLEANSORB technology). All products (as well as the various granulates) are developed, tested and made ready for series production in Ismaning. With an international marketing and service network, the maintenance package includes refilling absorber containers and a waste disposal service for used granulates.

As an international company operating in plant construction, centrotherm clean solutions has been designing, manufacturing and installing individual technical solutions for customer-specific challenges in environmental engineering for more than 30 years. A key area is the development of systems and equipment for treating exhaust gases released in chemical vapor deposition (CVD), etch, epitaxy, implant and drying processes, including the use of thermal and wet chemical processes, filtration, condensation, and combinations of these methods. The firm also offers customized solutions for the treatment of waste water (e.g. from wet benches and exhaust air scrubbers).
