Lithography light source manufacturer Gigaphoton Inc. has started business operations at its Gigaphoton Singapore Branch (GPSB).

Through its GPSB, the Japan-based company will be able to aggressively promote new business opportunities to find potential customers in Singapore by teaming up with lithography system manufacturers. The company also plans to further reinforce its local technical support system for existing Singaporean customers of Gigaphoton excimer lasers for semiconductor lithography systems.

Until now, Gigaphoton has developed its excimer laser business in Singapore with Komatsu Asia& Pacific Pte Ltd. (KAP), an overseas subsidiary of Komatsu Ltd., as its sales representative. Gigaphoton has established GPSB in order to directly engage in its Singapore-based business operations in the future.

Through commencing business operations at GPSB, which has a close affiliation with the Japanese headquarters, Gigaphoton will be able to offer speedy, top-level service support that will elicit even greater satisfaction from its clients in Singapore, which has been positioned as a vital site of operations in the semiconductor manufacturing industry, the company said.

The GPSB will be managed by Hiroto Kai and will provide service support for excimer lasers used for lithography tools in semiconductor manufacturing and sales of associated components.
