RUSNANO Invests in Global Leader Beneq

Finland and Moscow, Russia | Posted on April 12th, 2012

Beneq is a global supplier of industrial production and research equipment for thin film coatings used in solar photovoltaics, flexible electronics, strengthened glass and many more emerging applications. Industry-proven Beneq equipment and thin film experience is used for increasing the efficiency of crystalline silicon and thin film solar cells, producing transparent conductive oxide (TCO) coated glass and making touch screen glass more durable. Beneq has introduced revolutionary innovations within its coating technologies, including true roll-to-roll atomic layer deposition (ALD) and high-yield atmospheric aerosol coating (nAERO®).

As part of its planned expansion into existing and emerging markets, and thereto-related applications, Beneq commonly establishes close collaborative activities with research centers, universities and similar centers of excellence in regions where demand for its solutions is high and growing. In the short term, Beneq plans to initiate more activity centers, including one in Russia, where Beneq will further develop specific applications and equipment for the needs of customers in Russia and the CIS.

Sampo Ahonen, CEO of Beneq, sees the enabling effect of the investment: "This investment in Beneq is not only a covenant that ensures continued expansion of the company's business activities and its ability to serve its customers worldwide, it also opens new vistas of opportunity, including strengthening our presence in rapidly growing markets such as Russia".

Sergey Polikarpov, Managing Director at RUSNANO comments: "Beneq is a welcome member in our nanotechnology portfolio. We acknowledge the technical excellence of the company, and the literally untapped economical potential that lies before its thin film coating offering. We have also identified potential synergies between Beneq and companies already in the RUSNANO team. With a firm belief in the technical capabilities of Beneq and the global surge for thin film production capacity, we want to be a part of the growth that lies ahead".
