BOC Edwards, a global supplier of materials, equipment and services to the microelectronics manufacturing industry, announced today it will construct a 60-tonnes per year high-purity silane transfill facility in Kunshan, Suzhou, China. Local distribution facilities, known as transfills, compress bulk gas into cylinders for shipment to customer sites.

The new facility will serve the semiconductor, flat panel and float glass industries in China as well as other regions in Asia. Part of the project involves a long-term silane supply agreement that has been negotiated with Advanced Silicon Materials, LLC (ASiMI, Butte, Montana). Groundbreaking will occur within the next two months.

“BOC Edwards has an ongoing commitment to the growth of the semiconductor and flat panel industries in China, the rest of Asia, and around the world. The Suzhou facility is one example of the company’s long-range investment strategy for the region”, stated Peter Thomas, vice president of marketing for BOC Edwards’ electronic materials business. “Product cost and local supply are always key issues for the electronics industry,” he continued, “and this new facility is expected to provide a low cost material while improving supply chain reliability.”
