Changelight receives 2,000th Aixtron MOCVD system
Aachen/Germany – AIXTRON SE today announced installation of its 2,000th MOCVD system at LED and solar cell specialist company Changelight Co., Ltd., China.
Dr. Bastian Marheineke, Vice President Sales at AIXTRON, took the opportunity to congratulate Mr. DianMing Deng, President Changelight, personally. “We are extremely pleased to be able to share this historic occasion with such an important customer. Changelight was the first customer to use the AIX 2800G4 in China. Their AlGaInP LED epitaxial wafers and chips are amongst the best at the domestic level in terms of scale, output and sales. In 2010, multiple AIXTRON G3 and G4 systems were installed at the Xiamen facility with others at the Yangzhou site.
The vast majority of systems we sold in 2010, almost 95%, are used for the manufacture of LEDs. In the first quarter of 2011, around 90% of AIXTRONs revenues were generated by sales into Asia; almost 90% of systems sold are for the manufacture of LEDs. China will undoubtedly be our biggest market in 2011.”
Mr. DianMing Deng, President Changelight, adds, “We feel deeply honored that AIXTRON supplied its 2,000th system to Changelight. Development from our initial private enterprise to the present listed company is inseparable from the great support we have enjoyed from the AIXTRON team since our foundation in February 2006. With AIXTRON, a leading provider of deposition equipment in the semiconductor industry, we have had an intensive relationship and cooperation over the past five years. Today, our manufacturing facilities are based exclusively on AIXTRON MOCVD equipment which has been pivotal in our becoming the biggest supplier of high-quality AlGaInP Red Orange Yellow (ROY) HB LED chips in China.
The new systems form part of our future expansion plans in Yangzhou which was opened in April 2010. Looking to the future, I see our strategic cooperation partnership with AIXTRON will become deeper and broader. We send our best wishes for the company´s further success – hopefully with the delivery of the 3000th and 4000th MOCVD system in China, too.”
The 2,000th system is part of a multiple tool order for 60x2-inch AIX 2800G4-R systems for advanced optoelectronics devices and will be installed and commissioned by the local AIXTRON service team at the Changelight production facilities.
