Linde supports semiconductor manufacturer with expansion in OR

June 22, 2012 – BUSINESS WIRE — Linde North America is expanding its capacity to supply ultra-high purity (UHP) gases to a major global semiconductor manufacturer’s Pacific Northwest location.

Linde will expand its Hillsboro, OR facility by adding an additional plant to manufacture ultra-high purity nitrogen and oxygen. These products will be delivered by pipeline to the customer. Linde operates 2 ultra-high purity nitrogen and oxygen plants already at the site. Linde has been supplying high-purity gaseous to several semiconductor and solar manufacturers in the Hillsboro area since the early 1990s.

In addition, Linde will supply all bulk electronic gases, such as hydrogen, helium and argon, to the customer from its reliable infrastructure of production facilities across North America.

“Linde’s line of Spectra high purity nitrogen plants are designed to provide the highest purity of nitrogen and oxygen at the lowest total cost of supply. We have engineered these plants to produce high-volume gases with less than 1 part per billion impurities and with extraordinary power efficiencies,” said Cliff Caldwell, vice president and general manager of Electronics and Specialty Gases.

Linde North America is a member of The Linde Group, a world-leading global gases and engineering company and a major supplier of products and services to the semiconductor, electronics and solar manufacturing industries. Learn more at
