Entrepix Announces Formation of Entrepix Asia; Provides Key Local Equipment Resources to Service China Market


SHANGHAI, China - March 16, 2010 - Entrepix, Inc. (www.entrepix.com, a leading provider of chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) and related equipment and services for semiconductors and other advanced materials, today announced that it has formally established Entrepix Asia Pte. Ltd. Headquartered in Singapore, Entrepix Asia has personnel based in both Singapore and China, including engineering, sales and administrative staff. The new organization will provide direct sales and service support to Entrepix' customers throughout the Asia Pacific region, as well as offer regionally based spare parts inventory for enhanced customer support.


China has been the largest consumer of semiconductors since 2007, yet produces less than 10 percent of the country's consumption. China is expected to invest billions of dollars over the next several years to close the gap, primarily obtaining tools from the secondary equipment market to increase manufacturing capacity.


"Entrepix is well positioned to support the growth in China," said TK Lee, managing director of Entrepix Asia. "With Entrepix Asia, we bring to China an extensive catalog of refurbished CMP, metrology and related equipment, spare parts, service and training capabilities, as well as extensive process expertise and knowledge, all targeting 200 mm and smaller platforms. Our portfolio will significantly enable manufacturers as they start to set up their initial CMP lines or look to expand capacity of this critical process step."


Entrepix Asia services IDM's, foundries, OSAT and advanced packaging houses, including LED, MEMS, solar, nanotechnology and substrate manufacturers. The Chinese market and manufacturing activity provides opportunities for growth in each of these areas.
