EVG Expands Cleanroom & Opens New R&D Labs

The supplier of wafer bonding and lithography equipment for the MEMS  industry has doubled its cleanroom space and is advancing long-term growth plans

EV Group (EVG) an innovator in the nanotechnology and semiconductor markets, has completed its newly expanded cleanroom IV facility at its corporate headquarters in Austria. 

As part of the company's long-term growth strategy to address high-volume tool orders and speed time to market for its worldwide customer base, EVG doubled its cleanroom space for process development and pilot production services. 

The company has also increased the size of its application labs, added new R&D facilities for internal tool development and testing, and opened a new customer and employee training centre.

Together with the new cleanroom expansion, EVG increased the number of fully automated high-volume manufacturing systems (for different wafer sizes) to strengthen its customer demonstration and process development capabilities.

While manufacturing and product development are centralised at EVG's corporate headquarters in Austria, technology and process development teams there work closely with the company's subsidiaries in the U.S, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

In these locations, additional application labs and cleanroom facilities are available for onsite customer demonstration and technology process development. 

EVG works closely with many universities and R&D institutes worldwide, and plays a key role in numerous industry associations and consortia to contribute and continue the world's most advanced research and development for semiconductors, MEMS and other high-tech devices.

The company's new customer and employee training centre at its corporate headquarters provides several new rooms for instructional training courses, as well as a large number of manual and automated EVG tools for training. 

This new training centre provides EVG with additional flexibility and allows customers and employees worldwide who regularly attend training courses on EVG technologies to manufacturing processes, products and software, as well as equipment operation.

Earlier this year, the addition of a manufacturing facility doubling the production floor space marked the completion of the first phase of EVG's long term expansion plans. 

Already contributing to the firm's continued, steady growth from the beginning of 2012, EVG increased its order intake in fiscal year 2012 (ended September 30th, 2012) by 5 percent over fiscal 2011 and increased its revenue by 20 percent within the same period.

Also, in the last 12 months EVG added more than 100 new employees (to a current total of approximately 600 worldwide) and is continuing to recruit new employees in all departments.
