January 16, 2009: Elionix Inc., which supplies electron beam lithography systems, has begun construction to double its manufacturing output, the company announced in a news release.
Following several years of higher-than-anticipated growth, with expansions into North America and the Pacific Rim countries, Elionix needed more manufacturing space than their existing facility provided, the company said, adding that it recently purchased a large parcel of land for future expansion.
“Expanding our facilities is essential to fulfill our corporate goal of being the leading world-wide supplier of electron beam lithography systems, as well as providing innovative nanotechnology equipment yet to come,” said Yoshiyuki Makiuchi, executive director of Elionix.
Completion of the new NanoTech System Center expansion is scheduled for March. This center is located minutes away from the Elionix corporate headquarters in Tokyo, which offers an applications lab with clean room and customer training facility.
