Sonotec And S3 Alliance Sign Distribution Partnership


S3 to take over the Europe-wide sales and service for Sonotec's flow measurement technologies and air bubble detectors

With a non-contact handshake, the two managing directors Michael Münch and Thomas Riedel have sealed the partnership between Sonotec GmbH from Halle and the distributor S3 Alliance GmbH from Kirchentellinsfurt.

S3, a well established application specialist for process equipment, metrology, and handling, is taking over the Europe-wide sales and service for flow measurement technologies and air bubble detectors of Sonotec in the semiconductor and microelectronics industry.

Sonotec makes ultrasonic-based technologies for liquid flow monitoring on flexible and rigid tube systems. Non-contact flow meters and bubble detectors can monitor and control liquid flow processes without any risk of leakage or contamination and without causing any downtime of machinery. Sonotec's contactless measurement technology is particularly suited to sensitive semiconductor processes in which a number of abrasive, adhesive, corrosive, and high-purity liquids are applied.

“The cooperation brings together the strengths of two companies that are perfectly complementing each other. This opens up the opportunity to significantly yield market synergies for a successful operation in the European semiconductor industry”, said Michael Münch.

“We are very happy to collaborate with a German high-tech sensor company that is already successful in other industries. Sonotec products fit perfectly into the S3 Alliance portfolio that has strengths in CMP and wet chemical processing applications. Using accurate contactless technology enables easy and safe integration, with the possibility to control more accurately demanding semiconductor applications, which is required by the market. We will support Sonotec with access to an existing customer base in the industry and are looking forward to develop a strong and successful relationship for the future”, added Riedel.
