"We made the decision to base our Asia Headquarters and Advanced Technology Center in Taiwan, due to our desire to be closer to our customers in the region," said Ed Shober, chief executive officer of DA NanoMaterials. "Despite the current difficult economic environment, we view Asia, and especially Taiwan, as strong growth markets for CMP slurries. We wish to better position DA NanoMaterials for closer collaboration with our Asian customers, so we are very pleased to be making this significant investment in Taiwan."

The ATEC, which is now operational, is a Hsinchu-based 300mm-capable laboratory and technical center which is dedicated to developing and optimizing advanced CMP processes and consumable sets, and providing timely technical support to customers. This facility houses a state-of-the-art laboratory featuring 300mm CMP and defect metrology equipment, as well as an advanced chemical formulation laboratory to support product development and optimization.

"For a long time, CMP slurry users have sought increased technical support to help them reduce costs," said Dr. Saifi Usmani, vice president of Marketing, Business Development and Technology of DA NanoMaterials. "With its advanced capabilities, we believe ATEC will become the first choice for technical support of CMP slurries in the Asia region. DA NanoMaterials is continuously evaluating ways to meet its customers' needs better and faster as we look to the future, and this new facility is specifically designed to add value for them."

DA NanoMaterials continues to provide truly innovative products that deliver superior performance reliably with reduced total cost of ownership.

DA NanoMaterials markets its CMP slurries under the CoppeReady®, MicroPlanar®, Syton® and Mazin(TM) trademarks.
