MEI Wet Process Systems & Services Becomes RENA Technologies
Acquisition of MEI is part of RENA’s strategy to diversify its product and service portfolio
RENA Technologies North America is the new name of former MEI Wet Process Systems & Services, the US wet-chemical specialist for semiconductor equipment based in Albany, Oregon. RENA NA now becomes a member of the RENA Group, whose HQ is in Gütenbach, Germany (pictured above).
This acquisition is part of RENA's strategy to further diversify the product and service portfolio as a global provider of wet-chemical equipment for surface processing. With RENA NA the company has now much better access to the US market for the whole product range. RENA can now offer machine and process solutions for wet-chemical processing as MEI adds a complementary product portfolio while both companies have regional strengths that together address the international semiconductor market.
RENA's main markets are Europe and Asia while RENA NA is established within the US high-tech semiconductor sector. Together RENA now covers all wet-chemical process steps of semiconductor processing from prime wafer processing to MEMS, SiC and semiconductor processing including Plating technology, Batch Immersion, Batch Spray, and Single-wafer applications. RENA NA's new INCEPTION single-wafer processing shows the rapid progress in widening our product platform.
“RENA NA is the perfect partner to complete our SEMI product portfolio - as expected,” said Peter Schneidewind, CEO of RENA, “the long list of integration items are already complete just six months after closing. That is a clear signal of a great partnership between all working levels.
“The first phase of integration is now complete and we are very excited about our future. Joining RENA takes us to the next level where we can offer our customers an improved portfolio plus best in class, global support.” added Ed Jean, CEO of RENA NA.
“Even under these challenging conditions both RENA and RENA NA are on track to reach our order book plan for first half year, which shows the joint focus on customer needs,” said Schneidewind.
