AIXTRON AG today announced
an order for three mass production MOCVD systems for GaN HB-LED production from
the INCOTEX Group, a new AIXTRON customer in Bulgaria. INCOTEX placed the order
in the first quarter of 2010 and the systems will be delivered from the third
quarter of 2010 onwards. The local AIXTRON Europe support team will commission
the new reactors at the company’s purposebuilt facility in Bulgaria.
Dr. Plamen Dochev, Vice President INCOTEX Group, comments, “Deciding
on the AIXTRON reactor package was straightforward for us. This technology is
clearly the favoured route to economic and efficient high quality volume production
of high-brightness LEDs. We can also see that the technological leadership of
AIXTRON comes with a comprehensive Europe-wide service and support network.
There is so much interest in LEDs for general lighting, displays, and other
markets thus we are looking forward receiving the very best process equipment
and service. This will be of great help to us as we set up the first of a kind
manufacturing facility in Bulgaria.”
Dr. Frank Schulte, Vice President of AIXTRON Europe, adds, “We are pleased
to contribute to the expansion of HB-LED technologies in Bulgaria and Russia
and are committed to provide full support for INCOTEX growth and expansion.
We are convinced that INCOTEX has the potential to play a leading role in Eastern
Europe for LED Technology and will be an excellent partner. We are looking forward
to a long-lasting cooperation."
The INCOTEX Holding Company combines a group of companies that are focused
on development, production and servicing of a wide range of consumer-related
electronic products. INCOTEX Ltd., was established in 1992 to develop and produce
electronic cash registers but since then INCOTEX has become a powerful and multi-discipline
holding with production in Russia.
