Picarro Inc., a US-based provider of trace gas analysers for a variety of air monitoring applications, has teamed up with Challentech International Corporation, a well-established Taiwanese distributor of semiconductor products and optoelectronic equipment.
The agreement will see Challentech distribute the SI2000 analyser series in Taiwan and China.
The SI2000 is Picarro's newest gas analyser range, which provides high-speed real-time airborne molecule contamination (AMC) monitoring of HF, HCl, NH3 and H2S in cleanrooms, FOUP, and FAB equipment.
Picarro has reported that the demand for SI2000 Series analysers continues to increase, so the company found it vital to work with strong industry partners that supply Picarro products and provide system integration and technical support for manufacturers and end customers.
Challentech has been devoted to the Semiconductor industry for decades and the company operates a strong sales and marketing force with a proven track record of success in serving global customers and markets.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Challentech for the distribution of our SI2000 Series analysers. We are excited to increase our support of the semiconductor market with the addition of new partners in the APAC region.” said Jean Berthold, senior director of strategic marketing.
The new distribution partnership aligns with Picarro’s global growth strategy to expand the outreach of its semiconductor products within China and Taiwan. This agreement further demonstrates both companies’ willingness to cooperate, to drive sales and build customer relationships.
