SCI Engineered Materials Inc. (SCI), a manufacturer of ceramics and metals for advanced applications using physical vapor deposition, has received a $1 million order for thin-film solar products. The products are expected to be manufactured and shipped during the second half of this year.
SCI says it began developing additional products for thin-film solar in 2006, following several years as a materials supplier to that growing market. During the past two years, the company has accelerated the acquisition of manufacturing equipment to scale its operations and has also hired additional engineering and sales staff to specifically focus on thin-film solar.
Currently, SCI is actively involved in the qualification process with several customers and has received a number of trial orders in 2009.
