Semiconductor fab services company Simax Lithography BV is expanding its activities in Asia by starting up operations in Korea and China, the company announced at Semicon China (Shanghai New International Expo Centre, March 15-17, Booth 1643, Hall W1).
Simax Asia Pacific is based in Hong Kong, and forms Simax Lithography's sales and service center for the Chinese market. China's rapidly growing role in semiconductor manufacturing, especially for 'more than Moore' applications, often uses mature manufacturing technology which makes it a key market for Simax. Dr Cheng Gui has been named President of Simax Asia Pacific. He has a background in semiconductor manufacturing technology and applications development, along with marketing and sales, with companies like ASML and Azores.
"Our office in Hong Kong, soon to be followed by an operating company in mainland China, provides an excellent base to deliver Simax' products and services to our customers," said Dr. Cheng Gui. "Our rapidly growing team of lithography experts adds to our infrastructure in China."
