Petaluma, CA | Posted on November 13th, 2008

Mr. Dijkstra has more than 25 years of experience in semiconductor capital equipment market implementing global sales and service strategies. Most recently, Peter was the Director Worldwide Sales & Customer Support for Alcatel Micro Machining Systems (AMMS), a subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent. The assets of AMMS were acquired by Tegal in September, 2008. AMMS specialized in designing, manufacturing, marketing and servicing Deep Reactive Ion Etch (DRIE) systems as well as Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) systems for the fabrication of MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) and semiconductor devices. Peter's career at Alcatel spanned almost 20 years and he was instrumental in their success, holding successively more responsible positions of Field Engineer, Sales Support Engineer and Sales Manager.

Mr. Dijkstra also held senior engineering positions at FOM-AMOLF and VG Instruments, both based in the Netherlands, and has a degree from the Maritime Academy with an emphasis in HF Electronics and Telecommunications.

"We are pleased to welcome Peter to our Executive Team," said Thomas Mika, President and CEO of Tegal Corporation. "His extensive international experience will continue to open up new opportunities in applications integral to Tegal such as telecommunication, automotive, aerospace, computer peripheral, biomedical industries and semiconductors. Peter brings extensive sales experience and a proven track record that will drive Tegal's competitive positioning and build on our recent success in this area."

"Tegal has put together an impressive array of products and innovative technology," said Mr. Dijkstra. "With its innovative product portfolio, including its recent addition of DRIE systems, I am extremely excited about Tegal's prospects for growth. I look forward to transforming Tegal's strategic sales plans and corporate vision into a profitable reality," said Mr. Dijkstra.
