Smoltek receives order from leading process technology supplier

Smoltek, which is plan­ning an IPO at Akti­etor­get in Feb­ru­ary this year, has received an order from a lead­ing glob­al semi­con­duc­tor process tech­nol­o­gy supplier.

The CEO of the nan­otech com­pa­ny, Anders Johans­son, is very pleased with the progress of the company.

“This order demon­strates a real inter­est in eval­u­at­ing Smoltek’s tech­nol­o­gy, in this case for a cus­tomer spe­cif­ic appli­ca­tion for which the cus­tomer has iden­ti­fied a busi­ness poten­tial. This proves that our tech­nol­o­gy is inter­est­ing already at this point. We see this as a con­fir­ma­tion of that the time has now come for Smoltek”, says Anders Johansson.

The actu­al order is for a cus­tomer spe­cif­ic appli­ca­tion and includes pro­duc­tion of tai­lor-made test devices. Smoltek plans to com­plete the deliv­ery dur­ing the first quar­ter of 2018.
