CVD Announces Expansion of its Materials Business
(Nanowerk News) CVD Equipment Corporation announced
today the expansion of the materials portion of its business. These materials will be marketed
through its wholly owned subsidiary, CVD Materials Corporation, ("CVD Materials").
Leonard Rosenbaum, President of CVD Equipment Corporation, stated, "We believe that now is
the right time to build on the processing capability, material manufacturing, marketing and
business growth success of our Application Laboratory which continues to open new business
opportunities in both traditional and non traditional chemical vapor deposition related markets.
We will further develop our in-house next generation material manufacturing capabilities and
capacities and expand our marketing and sales efforts directly to researchers and innovators at
Universities, Government and Industrial R&D facilities that are working on application
development for tomorrow's next generation products in Semiconductors, Solar, Batteries,
Capacitors, Water Filtration, Catalysts Composites, and other traditional and non-traditional
chemical vapor deposition applications through CVD Materials. These applications will primarily
utilize Graphene, Carbon Nanotubes (CNT), Nanowires (NW), and other 1D, 2D and 3D surface
and surface area enhanced materials. CVD Materials Corporation will primarily focus on 1)
Contract CVD related process development, 2) Research material manufacturing, 3) CVD and
other nano enabled material manufacturing licensed from third parties and 4) on CVD
Equipment Corporation's proprietary materials and material processing platforms."
Karlheinz Strobl, Vice President of Business Development, further states, "We expect that this
business model extension will help to accelerate the commercialization of tomorrow's
technologies and will bring future Equipment, Material Manufacturing and Joint Venture
business opportunities to CVD Equipment Corporation. This expansion of the Application
Laboratory will further accelerate the commercialization of tomorrow's technology and our
"Sustainable Growth with Low Risk" business strategy."
