"As we continue to increase our installed base in the Asia Pacific region, it is critical that we develop a strong, local sales and service capability throughout the region. Working with Hermes-Epitek allows us to do exactly that," stated Dr. Adrian Kiermasz, president and CEO of Metryx. "We have gone through an extensive training program with Hermes-Epitek's sales and engineering staff, and are extremely confident that we have a long-term partner that will deliver the best possible service, while expanding and executing our growth strategy within the region."

As Taiwan's largest representative agent for semiconductor equipment, with over 30 years supporting the industry, Hermes-Epitek is ideally positioned to support Metryx in Taiwan, China and Singapore. Hermes-Epitek's historical experience with production metrology equipment was a major factor in its selection by Metryx.

"Metryx has done an excellent job of bringing this promising technology to market over the last two years," stated Dr. James Wang, Hermes-Epitek's director of Metrology and Mask Dept. "Their market penetration has been impressive with customers across the Asia Pacific region. We believe we not only bring a great deal of value in terms of support and service for the existing tool base, but also provide an excellent platform for growing that base significantly."

Hermes-Epitek Corp., headquartered in Hsinchu, Taiwan, has offices in a number of key locations throughout the region that will effectively support Metryx's existing installed base of Mentor tools. Sales and service in China will be provided by Hermes-Epitek China, a locally incorporated operation offering key access to this growing market. Hermes-Epitek Singapore will cover sales and services in Singapore and Malaysia.
