AIXTRON starts construction of new innovation center

The leading provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry is investing around EUR 100 million at its headquarters in Herzogenrath, Germany. With this, AIXTRON is laying an important foundation for further successful growth.


Herzogenrath, November 23, 2023 – AIXTRON SE (FSE: AIXA, ISIN DE000A0WMPJ6) has officially started the construction of the new innovation center at its headquarters in Herzogenrath, Germany. The leading provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry is investing around EUR 100 million in 1000m2 of clean room with additional space for the required metrology equipment. This research facility will feature the latest technologies available in the industry. The first systems are scheduled to move into the new building during the second half of 2024. The official handover is planned for early 2025.

This milestone in the company's successful history was marked with a symbolic ground-breaking ceremony attended by representatives from politics, science and research as well as key suppliers of the company. The framework for this significant step was a celebration in honor of AIXTRON’s 40th year since its founding: The company started in December 1983 as a spin-off from RWTH Aachen University. Since that time, AIXTRON has always been at the forefront of innovation and new, groundbreaking semiconductor technologies. The new innovation center continues on this path and forms an important foundation for the company's continued successful growth.

"We have just completely renewed our portfolio with our successful G10 product family. The demand from our customers is already very high, so we are in the middle of a volume ramp. And we are now also starting to work on the next generation of innovative technical solutions. With this, we will successfully drive forward the electrification of the world with the megatrends of digitalization, electromobility, and energy efficiency. The new innovation center provides us with essential capacities for all of this," says Dr. Felix Grawert, CEO of AIXTRON SE.

The cleanroom area of the innovation center will be of class ISO 6, expandable up to ISO 4. The new complex, known in the industry as "fab", will be one of the most compact and complex semiconductor fabs in the world: the area has two sub-levels. The first sub-level accommodates, e.g., the pump filter cabinets of the systems while the facility level houses all supporting processes and systems for the entire infrastructure.

This type of space utilization increases cleanroom efficiency by a factor of up to three compared to the previously used cleanroom areas.

Note to the editors: The ground-breaking ceremony is scheduled for 15:00/15:30 p.m. High-resolution press photos will be available afterwards, using the following link: www.aixtron.com/en/press/forty-years-of-innovation
