Tegal Signs Distributor Agreement With Westpac of Korea

San Jose, CA | Posted on February 14th, 2007

"This agreement with Westpac is an additional step in our overall strategy to enhance our distribution and support services globally, and especially in Asia," said Thomas Mika, President and CEO of Tegal. "Westpac has a very good reputation and we know them well, since they were most recently the AMS representative in Korea and were at one time the representative for Sputtered Films, Inc., our PVD subsidiary. There are some very good signs of renewed demand for our specialized systems in Korea, so we look forward to actively selling in this market once again."

"We are excited about forming a partnership with Tegal in Korea," said Henry Kim, President of Westpac Associates. "Tegal has been successful with their etch and PVD products in many market applications in both global and Korean markets. We plan to continue this success and grow Tegal's presence in Korea through this new partnership."
