Nanometrics Incorporated (Nasdaq: NANO), a leading supplier of advanced metrology equipment to the semiconductor industry, has named Toho Technology Corp. (Nagoya, Japan) as exclusive distributor in Japan for six Compound Semiconductor and Materials Characterization product lines, primarily serving the HB-LED, wafer substrate and Solar PV metrology sectors. The product lines include the RPM2000, Vektor, Vertex, ECV Pro, NanoSpec 3000 and NanoSpec 6100 systems. As exclusive distributor, Toho will work with Nanometrics to fully support these product offerings with its local sales and service network.
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.

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.
