Johnson Matthey Gas Purification Sells Two More Bulk Hydrogen Purifiers to Chinese Semiconductor Market

The Johnson Matthey Gas Purification Technology (GPT) group, a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of highly reliable bulk and point-of-use purifiers, is well positioned to continue and expand its support of China's rapidly growing compound semiconductor industry.

Johnson Matthey has been supplying equipment and technology to China through its distributor, Gentech International, and has just sold two more bulk hydrogen purifiers, one to Shanghai Blue Light Technology Company and another to HC Semitek.

China's compound semiconductor market is one of the fastest growing in Asia, said Sean Peng, Asian Sales Manager of Gas Purification for the GPT group. There is a great need for the best available technology to support this growth and Johnson Matthey's gas purifiers are state-of-the-art. We anticipate significant sales growth in China for Johnson Matthey purifiers and related technology and we appreciate the confidence the country's compound semiconductor makers have placed in us.

Observers expect China to be a magnet for companies building fabs, thanks to tax incentives and subsidies. The Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI) association projects 20 new fabs will be operating in China by the end of 2008.

Johnson Matthey is delivering a GPT-30 bulk purifier, capable of flowing 22.5 Nm3/hr of hydrogen, to Shanghai Blue Light Technology and a GPT-20 bulk purifier, capable of flowing 15 Nm3/hr of hydrogen, to HC Semitek, Inc. Shanghai Blue Light manufactures gallium nitride-based blue light epitaxial wafers and chips, while HC Semitek produces LED epitaxial wafers.

Gentech International is responsible for sales, training and service throughout China, "We want to be the leading supplier of gas purification products not only in China, but also in all of Asia. We have already sold a number of purifiers in the Pacific Rim and expect sales to grow in other Asian countries as well as in China, Peng said.
