Fremont, CA, December 12, 2003. New Wave Research has opened an office in Shanghai, China. The new office provides support and service for the company's products, including laser systems for LED, flat panel display and semiconductor manufacturing. The Shanghai office becomes the company's third office in Asia - others are located in Taiwan and Japan.
According to New Wave Research Vice President of Marketing, May Su, the move will help the company capitalize on the burgeoning display manufacturing industry in China. "With two other offices in Asia we already have solid footing in the region. However, we are seeing increased business activity in the evolving Chinese market, so our continued success demands that we have a local team."
According to a recent report from the Semiconductor Equipment and Materials Institute, there has been a rapid shift in display production from countries such as Japan, Korea and Taiwan, to China. The report states that nearly half of all CRT and LCD computer monitors are now produced in China.1
New Wave Research manufactures the EZ Laze and QuikLaze laser cutting systems for semiconductor failure analysis and flat panel display and LCD repair applications. The company also offers the AccuScribe sapphire wafer scribing system for semiconductor die singulation applications.
The new office is located in Room 606 of the Dragon Pearl Complex, 2123, Pudong Road, Pudong, Shanghai, China; Tel: +86-21-5860-9889; Fax: +86-21-5860-0424.
