News Release : Capital Injection into Semiconductor Inspection System Manufacturer
Capital Injection into Semiconductor Inspection System Manufacturer
Toray Engineering Co., Ltd. (Location: Chuo Ward, Tokyo, President and Chief Executive: Ryoichi Kawamura) has completed a deal with NGR Inc., (Location: Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, CEO: Masahiro Yamamoto) a manufacturer of semiconductor inspection systtem, to make a capital injection in the latter. Toray Engineering plans to use this capital injection deal to build a strategic partnership with NGR in order to accelerate its business expansion in the semiconductor equipment field.
Toray Engineering has a full lineup of inspection systems for semiconductor production processes, which enjoys a solid reputation for reliability, ease-of-use and cost performance on production lines.
Since its inception in July 2000, NGR has engaged in the development of semiconductor inspection systems using proprietary electron beam technology. However, use of existing production processes to manufacture cutting-edge semiconductor devices of ever shrinking dimensions and greater complexity has made yield ratio management problematic. Facing the challenge to meet the demand for new semiconductor inspection technologies has drawn the world's semiconductor manufacturers' attention to NGR's measurement technology.
Seeing the greater demand for inspection systtems to meet the ongoing trend of ever smaller dimensions and more complex of semiconductor production processes, Toray Engineering decided to form a strategic partnership with NGR to strengthen its foothold in the industry.
Toray Engineering sees this capital injection into NGR as the start of an initiative to form strategic alliances with other firms as a means to expand its business horizon.
