Business Strategy

Business Strategy

Our primary strategy is to strengthen and grow our core CMP consumables business. For example, we have expanded our total addressable market by approximately 40 percent by entering into the CMP polishing pad market, and we have strengthened our copper CMP slurry position through our acquisition of Epoch Material Co., Ltd. We are also looking to advance our Engineered Surface Finishes business by expanding our polishing expertise into new markets, such as optics and prime wafer polishing.
