Heraeus Increases R&D Capabilities At Its Conshohocken Site

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Heraeus' Photovoltaics Business Unit is enlarging their Research and Development organization at its site in West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania.  This involves the relocation of R&D members of other Heraeus sites to Conshohocken, and also includes the hiring of new R&D specialists and the expansion of lab infrastructure.

As Dr. Weiming Zhang, Vice President Technology, points out, "the PV industry is highly dynamic, so our rapid development and launching of new innovative paste products is a critical element for the success of our customers. By enlarging the team and performing core research activities in one site we will be able to continuously launch 2-3 new products every year. Through our Application and Technical Service Centers located in China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Singapore and Germany, we will continue working very closely with partners and customers."

Speed of development is a key success factor in the fast moving PV industry. This new investment in the Conshohocken site will keep Heraeus at the forefront of silver paste technology. Heraeus has been a technology leader in silver paste ever since it entered this industry in 2008. Under the leadership of Dr. Weiming Zhang, a growing number of scientists have developed several generations of leading-edge silver paste formulations since their initial product introduction of the SOL9235 Series.
