AIXTRON AG (FSE: AIXA; NASDAQ: AIXG), a leading provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry, today announced a new order for ten more CRIUS 31x2-inch configuration deposition systems from Neo-Neon International Ltd. The China based company placed the order in the fourth quarter of 2009 and when the systems are delivered in the period between third and fourth quarters of 2010, they will be used for GaN ultra-high brightness (UHB) blue/green LED production. The local AIXTRON support team will commission the new reactors at the company’s new five-story facility at the mainland China production plant in Guang Dong.
Mr. Ben Fan, Chairman of Neo-Neon International Ltd., comments, “We have been enjoying the benefits of our existing AIXTRON MOCVD systems for over a year now. In order to comply with our future expansion plans it is time to further increase our capacity, so naturally, we returned to AIXTRON. I am sure that this was the best decision because of the quality of their engineering and the responsive local support that come as standard with CRIUS systems.”
