Why:
Veeco is a reliable, market leading manufacturer of equipment for solar and other high-tech industries. The Governor was interested in learning about Veeco's recent business growth as a key Minnesota employer focused on green energy technology. Veeco's St. Paul workforce grew by 22% to 85 last year along with a 40% growth in the business' revenues. The growth is expected to continue as renewable energy technologies take hold.

What:
Governor Pawlenty toured Veeco's 115,000 square foot facility, learning about Veeco's technology and equipment that enable manufacture of thin film solar cells. Pawlenty met with Company management and employees to discuss the benefits of Veeco's equipment and the products that are made by Veeco's customers. Veeco's products are critical "building blocks" used to the manufacture CIGS (copper, indium, gallium, selenium) based solar cells in mass production, producing low cost, high efficiency solar panels. Veeco sells its equipment to many of the world's leading manufacturers of CIGS solar cells.
