This project is one of Europe’s largest capital expenditure investments in the semiconductor materials supply chain over the last decade, and will see a 4000m² expansion of the facility, increasing production capacity for core components and chemicals required for semiconductor manufacturing, including cleaners, polyimides, developers, and solvents.
The project will also see the addition of on-site solar panels, as part of Fujifilm’s Sustainable Value Plan 2030. Once complete, the expansion is expected to create 25 new roles, including production and lab roles, technical and academic functions, appealing to a broad spectrum of candidates with STEM academic and professional backgrounds.
Fujifilm’s investment in electronic materials has been growing globally, with nearly €1 billion in planned investment to meet expanding demand. Our Electronic Materials business is the largest business in Fujifilm’s Advanced Materials segment, and this latest expansion marks a significant milestone in accelerating its growth.
According to Hans Vloeberghs, President & Managing Director, FUJIFILM Electronic Materials (Europe) N.V.,
“This expansion is an important part of developing the European semiconductor ecosystem, which will be crucial for society in delivering cutting-edge future technologies across the fields of automotives, energy management, healthcare, business, and current and future digital industries.”
