Amiens, France - Technic has announced the purchase of a new chemical production facility located in Amiens, France. The acquisition will enable Technic to expand production of its semiconductor products and better serve the growing customer base in Europe and globally.
Technic cited several essential reasons for choosing this facility and location for its expansion. First, the facility, formerly owned by a chemicals manufacturer, is one of six high-threshold SEVESO sites in Amiens, meeting one of Technic’s primary classification requirements. Second, the facility’s large size offers the unique opportunity to expand capacity in both low and high volume production. Geographically, the facility’s proximity to Saint-Denis, where Technic’s primary production facility, administrative offices, and R&D laboratories are located, will allow for more efficient use of company resources.
"The addition of the Amiens location comes at an ideal time for our ongoing business strategy as a global supplier of advanced semiconductor process chemistry. This expansion will further help in maintaining our high-quality standards and better serve our growing customer base."
Philippe Vernin - President, Technic France
The Amiens facility represents Technic’s fourth location in France. Technic is planning significant upgrades to the facility in preparation for the production of its ultrapure strip, etch and clean process chemistry for semiconductor fabrication.
