ACM Research (Shanghai) Inc recently announced that its Pudong-based Asia-Pacific Manufacturing Center has been put into use.

The company, a subsidiary of US-headquartered semiconductor wet processing technology and products developer ACM Research, settled in Pudong's Zhangjiang area in 2006 and is dedicated to the R&D of single-wafer cleaning technology and equipment.

Thanks to its independently-developed Space Alternated Phase Shift (SAPS) and Timely Energized Bubble Oscillation (TEBO) megasonic cleaning technologies, the company has acquired a large number of clients including SK Hynix, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp, and Shanghai Huali Microelectronics Corp.

Its annual sales revenue is expected to reach $70 million this year, and it is seeking partnerships with Intel, Texas Instruments, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co, according to Wang Hui, president and CEO of ACM Research (Shanghai) Inc.

It is predicted that the newly-established manufacturing center will increase the company's annual output from 800 million yuan ($115.95 million) to 2.5 billion yuan ($362.35 million). 

The arrival of the center in Pudong was due to the area's favorable location, scientific and technological advantages, and emphasis on talented personnel, Wang explained.

Moreover, they can better serve their clients, most of which are based in Shanghai, and their R&D and production efficiency can be both improved as their R&D headquarters is also located in Shanghai, Wang added.

The company has been keen on developing cutting-edge technologies. So far, it boasts around 200 patents. In addition to cleaning equipment, the company also plans to expand its business operations in other fields.
