Add to my favorite
     MKS Instruments, Inc., a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, announced the completion of the previously announced acquisition of Atotech Limited for approximately US$4.4 billion in cash and MKS common stock. Atotech is a global leader in process chemicals, equipment, software and services for printed circuit boards, semiconductor IC packaging, and surface finishing.
     “The acquisition of Atotech positions MKS to accelerate roadmaps for future generations of advanced electronics devices,” said John T.C. Lee, President and CEO of MKS. “By combining leading capabilities in lasers, optics, motion and now process chemistry, MKS is set to be a leader in the next frontier for miniaturization and complexity: Optimizing the InterconnectSM, a significant enabling point of next-generation advanced electronics. Atotech’s leadership in functional and decorative surface finishing will also extend MKS’ product offering for industrial applications and grow our market reach. I could not be more excited to welcome the Atotech team to the MKS family.”
