Siltronic Invests SGD 3 billion in New Facility at JTC’s Tampines Wafer Fab Park

November 2021

Siltronic, a Munich-based silicon wafer manufacturer, has partnered with the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and invested SGD 3 billion (USD 2.2 billion) in its new manufacturing facility at JTC’s Tampines Wafer Fab Park. The investment until the end of 2024 will play an important role in meeting the increasing demand globally for semiconductors.

Siltronic started its operations in JTC’s Tampines Wafer Fab Park in 1999 with the manufacturing of 200 mm silicon wafers. In 2006, Siltronic added a second fab under a joint venture with Samsung Electronics for the manufacturing of 300 mm silicon ingots and wafers.

The new 300 mm fab, also under the joint venture with Samsung, will be the most advanced wafer facility of the Siltronic Group, producing crystal ingots as well as polished and epitaxial wafers. It will strengthen Siltronic Singapore as a key production hub within Siltronic’s production network. About 600 new jobs for professionals, engineers, technicians and skilled workers will be created.

This latest SGD 3 billion (USD 2.2 billion) investment follows preceding substantial investments the company has made over the past years. This new state-of-the-art facility, which represents Siltronic’s biggest investment in its history, will adopt a high degree of automation at its new fab and will allow employees to upgrade and upskill to take on higher value-added tasks.
