Rite Track Signs as Expertech Distributor for Diffusion Furnaces in Asia
(Nanowerk News) Rite Track, Inc., a leading semiconductor equipment supplier based in West Chester, Ohio announced today that it has signed an agreement to act as the sole distributor for Expertech diffusion furnace products, parts and services in Asia. Expertech has a long history of providing quality new, remanufactured, or certified used horizontal and vertical furnace systems to the semiconductor industry. More recently, Expertech became the sole authorized, licensed manufacturer for the popular Aviza VTR 6000 and Aviza VTR 7000 series furnace systems. Rite Track plans to manage the complementary diffusion furnace business through its existing manufacturing and distribution center in Singapore. While specific terms of this distributor agreement were not disclosed, it does leave open a path for future expansion to cover other regions.
“Expertech has a great product line-up ranging from SVG to Aviza furnace systems that have been the mainstay of the industry. I am thrilled that we were able to reach an agreement to represent Expertech in Asia,” stated Tim Hayden, Rite Track’s CEO and President. “In the end, the deal just made great sense to both sides. With our infrastructure in Asia, we are suppliers to most of the same customers. Our customers can expect the same award winning service and equipment support for Expertech products that they see with Rite Track products every day.”
Expertech Vice President & General Manager, Mark Cooper commented, “Rite Track offers us a clear path to better serve our Asian customer’s needs real-time.
