Silicon Quest International Announces New President and Updated Special Services Department
6th June, 2007
Silicon Quest International (SQI), a global silicon wafer supplier and manufacturer, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Zbigniew Radzimski to President of the company. Dr. Radzimski will be taking over for Richard Mee, President of SQI for almost ten years, who resigned last month.
"What is exciting about this new development," said Brian Kiernan, SQI's Manufacturing Manager, "is that Dr. Radzimski will put much of his focus on to the Special Services Department, and develop our growing strengths while serving the imminent need for these special products to our customers." The SQI Special Services Department provides wafering services such as thinning, custom shaping, polishing, and CMP of bare silicon wafers as well as device wafers provided by customers.
"SQI is a full-service manufacturing company, in addition to being a broker of silicon wafers," Dr. Radzimski said. "My goal is to help continue developing new products and services that are in need in the semiconductor industry, and to assist our sales staff by offering the best product available to our customers."
Dr. Radzimski has a PhD from the Technical University of Wroclaw, Poland, Department of Electronics. Thereafter, Dr. Radzimski joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at North Carolina State University where the majority of his work was concentrated on defect control and silicon engineering. He joined S.E.H. America in 1997 where as the Director of the Customer Interface Group his primary focus was on technical/sales support of US customers and product development.
In 2005 SQI hired Dr. Radzimski as the Vice President of Technology and Product Development to develop the Materials Engineering Department, featuring hands-on technical consulting and business development services. This department provides materials and processing expertise for semiconductor companies, especially for start-up companies in the areas of MEMS, analog applications, telecommunication, etc.
