Sunnyvale, CA – July 8, 2019 – JSR Micro, Inc. announced today that, to expand the company’s semiconductor materials manufacturing capabilities and capacity, it has begun construction on a new state-of-art facility in Hillsboro, OR. The full investment for the project is an estimated 100 million USD and is scheduled to start operations in 2020.
JSR recently purchased land in Oregon with the strategic vision to partner even more closely with its customer base and to broaden its semiconductor materials portfolio in the area of advanced cleans. The new facility will have a complete manufacturing suite including QA/QC, engineering and advanced process control capabilities. The site will work in conjunction with JSR’s local R&D team to quickly address issues and provide solutions for future technology requirements.
In recent years, the importance of advanced cleans has increased due to the complexity of the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing processes and the need for continual improvement in defectivity control. “We’re always focused on our quality, our customers and the performance of our materials,” said Mark Slezak, president of JSR Micro, Inc. “State of the art integration schemes have led to significant challenges for our customer in the area of defectivity reduction, which is why JSR is committed to investing in the area of advanced cleans.”
