Pfeiffer Vacuum has opened up a new 10,000 square foot Silicon Valley Innovation centre (SVIC) in San José.
The SVIC serves North American customers in all technological questions around high-vacuum technology, focusing on semiconductor applications and the integrated Pfeiffer Vacuum products.
Customers will be able to test and evaluate new vacuum solutions designed for their applications at early development stages. Onsite specialists and researchers will provide direct know-how support for all Pfeiffer Vacuum products.
“Opening the Silicon Valley Innovation centre demonstrates our commitment to drive innovation for our customers in the semiconductor market, and to support the development of future technologies”, says Britta Giesen, CEO of Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG.
“The direct collaboration with our customers in Silicon Valley is becoming increasingly important as the complexity of the production of microprocessors continues to increase,” says Ming Lee, VP Sales for North America at Pfeiffer Vacuum. “The centre and its team of experts will be essential in working even closer with our customers to efficiently design vacuum products and solutions for their technological challenges.”
