Veeco Receives Follow-on Order From KaiStar To Support LED Manufacturing Ramp

Stocks in this article: VECO

Veeco Instruments Inc. (Nasdaq: VECO) announced today that the Company has received an order for multi- and single-chamber TurboDisc® MOCVD Systems, including the new MaxBright® M™, from KaiStar Lighting Co., Ltd. KaiStar, a joint venture between Epistar Corporation and Shenzhen Kaifa Technology Co., Ltd., is based in Xiamen, China and began LED production in 2012. The systems will be added to KaiStar’s existing fleet of Veeco MOCVD systems as part of their 2013 capacity expansion plan.

MJ Jou, President of Epistar Corporation commented, “This latest capacity expansion in Xiamen is in keeping with our goal to maximize our position in the China LED backlighting, automotive and general illumination market. Since we originally selected Veeco as our MOCVD equipment supplier for KaiStar a year ago, we have been extremely impressed with the product quality, service and support we have received. A critical deciding factor has been Veeco’s quick process transfer which is important as we share know-how across our LED manufacturing sites. In addition, the TurboDisc’s low cost-of-ownership made it a straight-forward decision to turn to Veeco as we add more tools for KaiStar in 2013.”

Bill Miller, Executive Vice President of Veeco, commented, “We are pleased to support Epistar and Kaifa as they continue to expand their leadership position in the China market through KaiStar and their other joint ventures. We will remain focused on helping them to achieve their manufacturing goals.”
