Applied Materials acquires Torrex

June 15, 2004 – Applied Materials Inc. has acquired all of the outstanding stock of Torrex, Livermore, CA, for an undisclosed cash amount. Founded in 1991, Torrex developed a new class of manufacturing systems that can process up to 50 wafers at a time in a stacked single-wafer environment.

Torrex’s FlexStar system has reportedly demonstrated breakthrough performance over traditional hot wall furnaces for ALD (atomic layer deposition) and LPCVD (low pressure chemical vapor deposition) applications on both 200mm and 300mm wafers.
