Ceradyne Opens New Solar Crucible Factory


Ceradyne Inc., a developer and manufacturer of technical ceramic products, has opened a new 218,000 square-foot factory in Tianjin, China, called Ceradyne Tianjin Advanced Materials.

This newly constructed facility will produce high-purity ceramic crucibles for the forming of large polysilicon ingots for use in the manufacturing of photovoltaic silicon solar cells, the company says.

The factory is located on Ceradyne's 13.7-acre plot in the Tianjin Airport Economic Area. The operation will be run by Ceradyne Chinese executives and engineers who have been trained by U.S.-based Ceradyne Thermo Materials' management.
