Telefunken Semiconductors plans a multi-million dollar investment to expand its Roseville, California, manufacturing facility and increase production capacity.
The firm said its first phase of its expansion will increase its wafer processing capability by 100 percent. “Telefunken Semiconductors is excited to announce the expansion of our manufacturing facility here in the U.S.,” said Roger Lee, President and chief executive officer. “The increased capacity is the result our recent acquisition of the state-of-the-art semiconductor equipment from factories in Japan. The added tools will help us to satisfy the strong demand we are forecasting from our customers. This will move Telefunken Semiconductors into one of the top spots for specialty foundries in the Western world.”
“Growing our capacity with advanced silicon processing tools and offering a comprehensive suite of strategic foundry services at a competitive cost is an important part of our overall corporate mission. This expansion is a testimony of our strong commitment to, and profound belief in, the high-tech manufacturing and R&D which are so critical to our overall economic eco-system. Our goal is to be a customer’s first choice for high-performance, competitive, specialized and trusted semiconductor foundry solutions,” he added. No immediate job creation estimates were expected as a result of the expansion.
