With the acquisition Heraeus Conamic expands its portfolio for semi-finished quartz materials for the semiconductor industry. Christoph Fark, President Heraeus Conamic, said: “The semiconductor market in Korea is a driving force in the global semiconductor industry and is expected to grow significantly. With this step we will strengthen our presence as a supplier of quartz base materials in Korea. This represents a major step towards long-term success, both for our customers and for Heraeus Conamic.”
Founded in 1995 and located in South Korea, HS Advanced Materials offers semi-finished quartz products to quartz fabricators in Korea and worldwide. The company provides the entire portfolio of quartz base materials, e. g. quartz rings, ingots, plates, rods, tubes. The quartz conversion capabilities of HS Advanced Materials include various technologies, such as wire saws, band saws, core drilling, lathe cutting and grinding.
The company will act as and be further developed as Asian hub for Heraeus Conamic’s Base Material business, focusing on semi-finished quartz goods for the semiconductor industry. “We are very pleased to welcome the entire HSAM team to Heraeus Conamic and are very much looking forward to embarking on a growth path together,” adds Michael Werth, President Heraeus Conamic. In preparation for the growth strategy, HSAM has already relocated to a new and bigger site, roughly 20 kilometers from its old location. All personnel will stay abord.
