Billerica (US): Entegris Inc. has announced its plans to expand production and purification capacity for its Pueblo, Colorado, and Hollister, California sites to meet the expected surge in demand for its Electronic Chemicals products. This business is part of the company's Advanced Planarization Solutions (APS) division and provides ultra-high purity acids, bases, solvents, and formulated blend chemistries that are used by semiconductor manufacturers across the globe- Europe, USA and Southeast Asia. The expansion in capacity comes as a result of Entegris’ dedication to meeting customer needs in this space while also ensuring they have access to cutting edge materials and technologies.

Entegris Inc. has announced that it is investing an estimated $50 million into its Pueblo, Colorado and Hollister, California sites in order to meet the expected upsurge in demand for their Electronic Chemicals business. This investment comes on top of the recent investments made by Entegris into Europe and Southeast Asia and is a response to the growing interest from advanced node customers to secure low-organic solvent1 and higher-purity cleaning chemistries2 from North America and Europe. The capacity boost is slated to be completed within two years.

“We are pleased to announce these two capacity expansion projects at existing sites in the U.S.; these will solidify the leadership position achieved by the Electronic Chemical business with key customers and position this business well for the future. The recent enactment into law of the CHIPS for America Act as well as the European Chips Act reinforce our belief that it is time to expand capacity and capability in anticipation of new customer fabs coming on stream in 2024 and 2025,” said Bertrand Loy, Entegris president and CEO.
