Date Announced: 01 Dec 2011 Aachen/Germany -– AIXTRON SE today announced that Arima Changzhi, a JV LED manufacturing company involving Changzhi High Tech Industry Investment Co., China, and Arima Optoelectronics from Taiwan, placed an order for three 42x2-inch wafer configuration AIX 2800G4 HT MOCVD systems as well as three 11x4-inch wafer configuration AIX 2800G4 HT MOCVD systems. All reactors have been installed and commissioned by a local AIXTRON service support team and will be used for the production of HB-LEDs. Mr. Chen, General Manager of Changzhi High Tech, expressed his satisfaction with progress so far: “We have been very actively preparing our epitaxy process development and production of LED for HB LED wafers and chips. Underpinning this strategic plan will continue to be the equipment we receive from AIXTRON, the world´s leading supplier of MOCVD equipment for the production of LEDs. "Through our long-standing ISCAS* collaborations and more recently with Arima Changzhi, they have impressively shown us how easy it is to achieve outstanding results in a very short time." Bastian Marheineke, Vice President Sales at AIXTRON, comments: "Repeat orders are particularly important to us and we will be with our customer every step of the way. As usual, we will ensure the highest performance and best utilization of AIXTRON equipment. We know how crucial these six reactors are to them and are pleased to work closely with their highly knowledgeable staff to a smooth and rapid ramp to full production.” * ISCAS = Institute of Semiconductors of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Bejing
