What do rice cookers, mobile phones, baby monitors, industrial robots and cars have in common? They all contain microchips that require one or a set of photomasks to produce.

Toppan Photomask Co, Ltd, the only photomask manufacturer with manufacturing facilities in the US, Europe, Japan and Asia, together with the participation of Integral Corporation, an investment patner, will drive further growth, increase competitiveness and support the semiconductor industry as the global leader in the photomask market.

Europe is an exciting place for the photomask industry

The Dresden facility, Toppan Photomasks Germany GmbH, is based on one of the most successful and enduring joint ventures in the history of the semiconductor industry. Since 2002, the Advanced Mask Technology Center (AMTC GmbH & Co. KG), together with its partner Global Foundries, has developed strongly over several technology generations. In line with its philosophy of "One Site 2 locations Mindset and Operations Execution", the sister plant Toppan Photomasks France SAS in Corbeil-Essonnes is also key to its success by producing a large number of standard photomasks.
