Atlumin Energy Inc., a manufacturer of alloys, specialty chemicals and other materials for the renewable energy market, has opened a manufacturing facility in Sunnyvale, Calif.
The company plans to ship its first products – customer-specific rotary sputtering targets for solar module manufacture – from this new facility in January 2010. The plant will ultimately manufacture a full range of products for solar module manufacturers.
‘We are putting manufacturing roots in California to be local to many of our key thin-film customers' manufacturing sites and development locations,’ says David Preische, vice president of sales at Atlumin. ‘Our new facility is within 10 to 20 minutes of many local customers. This proximity dramatically compresses response time and development cycles.’
