SSS Foundry Expansion

Silicon Sensing has been established over 20 years, but can trace its technology back much further through the parent companies of Collins Aerospace and Sumitomo Precision Products. As we continued to leverage these rich technologies, and grow as a business, we have been slowly outgrowing our facilities. In 2018 the Silicon Sensing UK team made the first steps to support the growth of the business by relocated their entire team of engineers, sales, finance, quality, procurement and commercial, along with the manufacturing, to a purpose designed new facility in the UK. Now it is the time for the team in Silicon Sensing Japan to do much the same.

The process is well underway to relocate the MEMS foundry into a new facility in Amagasaki. The office staff have relocated, and the wafer fabrication has also relocated along with some of the end of line test (EOLT). The relocation of the remaining EOLT and the sensor assemblies is on schedule to complete in February 2021. This is no mean feat the team have been working on, but their new home will offer an increase from 800m2 to a huge 3,136m2, whilst also meeting the latest standards for both earthquake and tsunami mitigation.

This will allow a significant increase in wafer production, enabling Silicon Sensing to support the growing foundry business, while allowing uninterrupted supply in our long-established inertial product business.
