The Vacuum engineering company Edwards is to set up a new service technology centre in Blanchardstown, in Dublin to support the semiconductor manufacturing industry here in Ireland.
Edwards supplies vacuum and abatement technology, along with the equipment and services, which are necessary to support the efficient and environmentally sustainable production of semiconductors.
The company said the centre in Blanchardstown will use advanced automation and data solutions to disassemble, clean, inspect, repair, replace and reassemble vacuum pumps and abatement equipment.
The new facility will include warehousing facilities, factory areas, meeting rooms, and a dedicated training centre to cater to the practical and theoretical training needs of both Edwards employees and those of its customers.
Troy Metcalf, President of Edwards Semiconductor Service, said the company’s new Dublin site will become a flagship facility in its global network of service technology centres.
Edwards’ investment here is being supported by IDA Ireland.
