First of Its Kind: Lean, Clean and Green Smart Facility

Quakertown, PA USA. April 24, 2017QuantumClean and ChemTrace unveiled the world’s most advanced semiconductor chamber parts cleaning, coating and analytical facility in Tainan, Taiwan.  This plant is the company’s 18th global facility, the second in Taiwan.  Quantum Global Technologies’ facilities, in 13 semiconductor manufacturing regions around the world, clean over 1 million semiconductor process chamber parts annually — no other cleaner can claim to match these impressive statistics.

“This plant is ‘Smart, Lean, Clean and Green™’, a first of its kind in its industry.  The opening of this advanced facility is yet another milestone in QuantumClean and ChemTrace’s evolution and a demonstration of our continuous innovation, growth and value generation for our customers”, states Scott Nicholas President and CEO, Quantum Global Technologies, LLC.

“Lean modular layouts provide unprecedented segregation, capacity and throughput measured in hours not days.  High-purity cleaning technologies yield Atomically Clean Surfaces™ exceeding requirements for sub-10nm fab processes.  The facility is engineered to significantly reduce water, chemical and energy usage and waste discharges”, explains Dave Zuck COO and CTO, Quantum Global Technologies, LLC.

17 years ago, QuantumClean had a goal to become the number one outsourced chamber parts cleaning company to the semiconductor industry, not only in the US, but worldwide.  We accomplished the goal by:

  • continuously innovating to help solve customers’ process chamber challenges
  • producing the cleanest chamber parts, as proven through analytical verification
  • being the first to offer a Certificate of Analysis with cleaned parts
  • taking uncertainty out of customers’ part cleaning process and allowing customers to focus on their core, profit-making objectives
  • bringing a differentiated service that provides greater value to our customers than our competition

The Tainan site offers customers the full spectrum of part cleaning and recoating capability for all fab processes, and is Taiwan’s only cleaning and coating service provider with an embedded microcontamination laboratory — ChemTrace — with 23 years of expertise in validating part cleanliness.

ChemTrace is an industry-leading semiconductor laboratory that provides clients with critical insight into their microcontamination issues.  “Continued expansion of ChemTrace’s global footprint with the recent opening of the state-of-the-art laboratory in Tainan allows regional semiconductor industry customers direct access to our advanced laboratories for rapid turnaround and expert analysis”, explains Surjany Russell, ChemTrace’s Director of Sales.

“We welcome industry visitors to the QuantumClean and ChemTrace facility at No. 7 Gongye 3rd Road, Annan District, Tainan, Taiwan to see the differentiated value that this plant brings to current and future customers”, concludes Mr. Nicholas.  Call +866-6384-830 to set up an appointment.
