Thermco Systems (a division of Tetreon Technologies Ltd that makes equipment for the semiconductor, power devices, MEMS, LED and photovoltaic sectors) has announced its expansion into a second manufacturing facility, close to its existing UK facility in Washington, West Sussex.

Acquisition of the new plant is part of Thermco’s planned growth strategy, implemented to support increased demand for its flagship range of horizontal thermal reactors and chemical wet-benches.

The new facility follows the firm’s recent acquisition of CSD Epitaxy Inc of Fremont, CA, USA (which makes the Epi-pro epitaxy batch reactor) and its new strategic association with Kokusai Electric in Europe.

Founded in 1962 and having the largest installed base of over 30,000 horizontal diffusion furnaces worldwide for the semiconductor market, Thermco says that, as a result of these developments, its customers can now benefit from an increased range of semiconductor solutions across Europe, North America, Canada, Russia, China and other Asian locations.

These solutions now include: horizontal and vertical atmospheric and low-pressure chemical vapor deposition (LPCVD) thermal reactor furnaces; batch epitaxy reactors; chemical wet-benches; epitaxy reactors and batch ashers; four-point probes and other metrology equipment; and next-generation backward compatible control systems and gas cabinets.

“It’s been a very exciting year for Thermco in which we’ve seen our order book go from strength to strength and the business grow considerably,” comments Thermco’s managing director Andrew Conning. “Our acquisition of CSD Epitaxy in California and the strong relationship we’ve built with Kokusai in Europe give us improved capability and capacity to meet our customers’ needs and deliver high-quality engineered solutions.”
