Strategic Market Focus

Our Strategic Emphasis on Silicon Carbide and Power Semiconductor Sectors

At Amtech, we focus specifically on two high-growth sectors of the semiconductor market: Silicon Carbide and Power Semiconductors. Our diversified product portfolio addresses several fundamental process steps in chip manufacturing, including substrate, chip fabrication and packaging / surface mount technology (SMT). We provide wafer polishing equipment and related consumables and diffusion and reflow equipment to leading semiconductor manufacturers around the globe.

Silicon Carbide

Our silicon carbide (SiC)/light-emitting diode (LED) segment provides innovative solutions to the lapping and polishing market for SiC power chip applications, LED, optics, and photonics.

Power Semiconductor

Our power semiconductor segment develops equipment for thermal processing and deposition for semiconductor manufacturing, specifically focusing on substrate, fabrication, packaging, and SMT.

Next-generation Semiconductor Equipment & Products

Our product portfolio includes a wide range of essential semiconductor equipment such as lapping and polishing, diffusion furnace, and thermal processing.

Lapping & Polishing

Through P.R. Hoffman, we manufacture and sell a wide range of products, including substrate carriers, substrate polishing templates, and lapping and polishing machines. P.R. Hoffman is one of the leading providers of innovative lapping and polishing consumables and machines for silicon, silicon carbide/gallium nitride and LED.

About Lapping & Polishing

Diffusion Furnace

Through Bruce Technologies, we manufacture and sell 200mm and 300mm horizontal diffusion and deposition furnaces, which address several steps in the semiconductor manufacturing process, including diffusion, LPCVD, high-temperature oxidation, and annealing. Bruce Technologies’ 300mm HTR furnace is a leader in HTR diffusion for power semiconductors.

Our Strategy for Sustainable Growth

We seek to grow revenue and expand our operations through the pursuit of our four strategies.

Capitalizing on Growth Opportunities Within the Industry

We believe several emerging opportunities have the potential to drive long-term growth in the semiconductor industry in the very near future. These include the growing demand for electronic vehicles, 5G and mobility, consumer and industrial Internet-of-Things (IoT), A.I., Big Data, and emerging growth in new compound substrates, such as silicon carbide and gallium nitride.

As the semiconductor market continues to develop and evolve, we will continue to leverage our strong market position, relationships with leading global semiconductor customers, and proven track record of technical innovation to deliver next-generation technology solutions.

Developing Multi-product Solutions to Expand Our Addressable Market

By continuing to grow our portfolio, we can expand our product offerings within the power semiconductor and silicon carbide markets, and thus capture a greater percentage of capital spent on increasing power semiconductor and silicon carbide production.

In the past, we have successfully developed products in order to expand our addressable market and make evolutionary upgrades to our existing equipment and service offerings across our operating segments. And as we move forward, we will continue to invest in the development of new products as well as invest in upgrades for our existing product offerings so that we may strengthen our competitive advantage in the markets we serve. 

Pursuing Strategic Acquisitions that Complement Our Strong Platform

Throughout our history, our acquisition strategy has remained consistent with our focus on maintaining market leadership and technology innovation that addresses the continued growth in the semiconductor industry.

Today, we frequently evaluate potential technology, product, and business acquisitions or joint venture opportunities which we believe will help us to increase our existing market share in the power semiconductor and SiC/LED industries and expand our addressable market. As we move forward, we will continue to carefully manage our balance sheet to maintain adequate liquidity so that we may react quickly as these opportunities arise.

Investing in Our Infrastructure and Capacity

In July 2020, our SiC/LED segment (P.R. Hoffman) moved to a new location. This larger facility allows us to increase our manufacturing footprint and position our business to meet the expected longer-term increase in demand for our SiC, optics, and silicon substrate product solutions.

We have also begun assessing the manufacturing space used by our semiconductor segment for capacity expansion, added efficiencies, and cost savings, which could result in a future relocation of a manufacturing facility and/or investments in upgrades to existing facilities. Additionally, we also continually evaluate our ERP systems in order to allow for greater efficiencies and to ensure our infrastructure can support our future growth plans.

Our Strategy for Sustainable Growth
