Voltaix to Construct Manufacturing Facility in Pennsylvania

Voltaix, LLC, a leading provider of materials that enhance the performance of semiconductor chips and solar cells, plans to open a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Northampton County, Pennsylvania. Voltaix, LLC will construct the plant at the Portland Industrial Park in Upper Mt. Bethel Township. Plant construction is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of this year with operations beginning in 2011.

 Mark Wilkinson, Executive Vice President of Voltaix, LLC said: "We look forward to working closely with the local communities as we establish and grow our manufacturing capabilities in Pennsylvania. We truly appreciate the assistance of the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation, the Governor's Action Team, Northampton County, the Bangor Area School District Economic Development Authority, and other local officials in siting, permitting, and financing this facility."

"Voltaix's decision to move to Pennsylvania shows that our economic development programs continue to work," said Governor Rendell. "The jobs created over the next three years will offer great salaries. The township, county and state will also benefit from the company's presence here." The Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation worked with Voltaix and the Governor's Action Team to secure a $2,764,000 funding offer from the Department of Community and Economic Development for the project. The offer includes a $250,000 opportunity grant, a $1,855,000 loan from the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority, a $500,000 loan from the Machinery and Equipment Loan Fund, $106,000 in job training assistance and $53,000 in job creation tax credits.

Voltaix is the world leader in the manufacture of a number of electronics products, including germane, diborane, trisilane, and trimethyl boron. It uses proprietary synthesis, purification, and packaging technology developed in-house and designs and builds its own equipment for use in manufacturing operations.
