Last year, Dalian Linton NC Machine Co. Ltd. broke ground on a nearly 70,000 square meter research and design center and manufacturing base in Xishan, Wuxi, China. The facility represents an investment of more than $432 million U.S dollars. With its completion at the end of 2020, the annual CZ grower equipment production capacity of Linton will exceed 2,000 units.
“The construction of this new facility in Wuxi will enable us to conduct research, design and manufacturing of our CZ process growers under one roof, expediting product delivery to customers,” explains Ronald Kramer, director of business development for Linton. “Saws and other wafer processing equipment will continue to be manufactured in the facility in Dalian, China, for efficient production of that line as well.”
