Showa Denko K.K. (SDK) has decided to strengthen its business in China related to high-purity gases for electronics through its wholly owned subsidiary Shanghai Showa Electronics Materials Co. (SSE).
SDK has been producing and selling equipment for treating used high-purity gases through Shanghai Showa Specialty Purification Co. (SSS), a joint venture with Shanghai Synica Co. of China. The equipment purifies exhaust gas resulting from the production of semiconductors and LCD panels.
To further strengthen the business, SDK has decided to have SSE take over the business from SSS. SSE is scheduled to start operations in August this year, and SSS will terminate its operations at the same time.
In addition to the existing business of SSS, SSE will expand its operations in the future, covering production, sales, and distribution of high-purity gases for the Chinese electronics industry.
SDK aims to strengthen its electronic chemicals business, using SSE as its centerpiece in China.
