Riber signs agreement with Annealsys
Addition of innovative thin-film deposition techniques part of diversification strategy
Riber has signed a distribution agreement with Annealsys, a company specialising in innovative vapour phase chemical deposition processes (CVD and ALD) for a wide range of applications, from semiconductors to solar cells, LEDs and microsystems..
Annealsys' equipment is aimed primarily at research laboratories and universities, and industrial operators producing small batches. Founded in 2004 and based in Montpellier, France, Annealsys has built up unique CVD and ALD expertise, particularly for the integration of direct liquid injection vapourisers, making it possible to implement a wide variety of chemical precursors and develop processes for growing new materials.
Initially, the partnership will focus on CVD and ALD products and the American and Asian regions. Annealsys is looking to accelerate its sales growth internationally while for Riber it is an opportunity to further diversify into other thin-film deposition techniques.
