Elionix To Double Size Of Its Nanotechnology E-Beam System Center
(Nanowerk News) Elionix, a world leading supplier of electron beam lithography systems for over 30 years, has begun construction to double its manufacturing output. Following several years of higher-than-anticipated growth, with expansions into North America and the Pacific Rim countries, Elionix needed more manufacturing space than their existing facility provided. In addition, Elionix has recently purchased a large parcel of land for future expansion.
"Expanding our facilities is essential to fulfill our corporate goal of being the leading world-wide supplier of electron beam lithography systems, as well as providing innovative nanotechnology equipment yet to come," said Yoshiyuki Makiuchi, Executive director of Elionix, Inc., "We are delighted to take this opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to our customers, and the nanotech community, for making this expansion a reality."
On October 1, 2008, Elionix broke ground for expansion of its NanoTech System Center in Tokyo, Japan
Completion of the new NanoTech System Center expansion is scheduled for March. This Center is located minutes away from the Elionix corporate headquarters in Tokyo, which offers an applications lab with clean room and customer training facility.
