Nanometrics Names Toho Technology Japan Distributor for its Compound Semiconductor Product Lines

Milpitas, CA | Posted on February 13th, 2008

Included in its agreement with the company, Toho Technology will open a dedicated demo facility in the Tokyo area to facilitate product sales and marketing in the Japan region. This latest agreement follows on the successful sale of Nanometrics' Flat Panel Display (FPD) Business Unit to Toho Technology (December 20, 2005). Nanometrics will continue to sell its 200mm/300mm fab tools through its Nanometrics Japan subsidiary.

"This partnership with Toho to support our Materials Characterization products will greatly improve our corporate presence in the region and enable Nanometrics to focus on its growing fab business," commented Tom Ryan, director of Nanometrics' Materials Characterization Business Unit.
