OBDUCAT AB (publ), a leading supplier of lithography processing solutions and nanoimprint lithography (NIL) tools, has entered into collaboration agreement with Neutronix Quintel (NXQ), a world-renowned US-based supplier of mask aligners & photolithography systems.
Obducat and NXQ have had a longstanding relationship and mutual technological respect, and this agreement marks the start of a more comprehensive collaboration focused on sales, marketing, service, and support. NXQ will support the sales and marketing activities as well as handle the service and support for Obducat products on the American continent and Obducat will reciprocally do the same for NXQ products on the European continent.
"We know from earlier joint projects, that the NXQ lithography tools offers unique and superior performance and that makes a very good fit with Obducat's highly customizable product platform focused on high volume manufacturing. Additionally, their customer focus and superior customer satisfaction throughout the years with more than 1500 tools installed, makes NXQ a very desirable partner. With this collaboration we will jointly expand our market presence and local service and support which will in its turn strengthen our competitiveness. Furthermore, we will be able to bundle offers on standalone tools and gain the ability to provide very competitive clustered lithography solutions. This also enables us to adapt faster to a rapidly changing business environment with increased regionalization – all in the pursuit of giving our customers the best possible support "says Patrik Lundström, CEO of Obducat.
"Obducat is known throughout Europe and Asia for being a superior technology leader in NIL, resist coat, develop, lift off, clean and etch tools. Obducat has proven itself with an installed base over 600 tools. NXQ is excited to work with Obducat as their chosen partner to help with this expansion into North America and Obducat is the perfect partner for our expansion throughout Europe. While the Obducat products are extremely well known for performance and reliability, it's their impressive culture and commitment to customers success that makes this offering so compelling. Our combined, expanded, and flexible product offering which now includes cluster configurations, will be backed by the unwavering commitment of exceptional customer support. We are very pleased to offer more solutions and maintain the commitment to our customers success. This is truly a win-win-win collaboration for NXQ and Obducat, but most importantly a real win for our customers. ", says Brett Arnold, CEO of NXQ.
