The enhancement of the Entegris Center of Excellence in Germany reaffirms our commitment to the European semiconductor market, said Patrick McKinney, Entegris president of the semiconductor market sector. By moving production closer to our customers we have the capability to respond to them much faster. Tighter communication with our global customer base is one of our top priorities at Entegris, and this step is another example of delivering upon that goal.
