Jenoptik involved in building work for Infineon's 300mm semiconductor fab in Dresden
Jenoptik subsidiary M+W Zander is awarded a million order.
M+W Zander, a subsidiary of the Technology Group JENOPTIK AG in Jena, (security code No. 622910) will be involved in building work for the new semiconductor plant of Infineon Technologies AG. Infineon is going to invest more than one billion Euros in a new production facility at its Dresden location. A special company under the name of Infineon Technologies SC 300 GmbH & Co. KG will be established for the semiconductor fab.
According to a statement released by JENOPTIK AG on Friday in Jena, the order volume for M+W Zander is clearly in the three-digit million Euros range. Further details about the building project are to be announced during the foundation ceremony late in May this year.
Competitive advantage through know-how in the 300-millimetre technology.
The new Infineon factory ranks among the first production facilities to manufacture chips based on the 300-millimetre technology on a global scale. Since 1998 Infineon has cooperated with Motorola in a joint venture to develop a new manufacturing technology and has successfully tested one of the most advanced production plants which is also located in Dresden.
In an Infineon-guided project study under the name of "Fab of the Future", M+W Zander contributed essential know-how required to design the production facilities for the new technology generation in chip manufacturing.
