“Obducat can already today claim international market leadership within nano lithography. But following an increased industrial interest, a new demand for even higher pace, expanded project capacity and key market local presence has been obvious. Increased resources are needed to maintain our present position and, in addition, expand for the future. We want to alert the market of the fact that Obducat is ready to take the next step”, says Peter Jonsson, Chairman of the Obducat Board of Directors.
