SemiNex Corporation Extends Epitaxial Growth Options with IQE

SemiNex Corporation, a leading supplier of high-power InP lasers in the 1300 to 1700 nm range is pleased to announce an expanded business relationship with IQE’s Photonics Business Unit which brings additional capacity to the laser product market.

SemiNex has experienced rapid growth and market share improvements over the past two years with business more than tripling in that time frame. This is due in part to the fabless business model and SemiNex’s ability to offer quick product development. SemiNex utilizes best-in-class outsourcing for critical components including the highest quality of epitaxial material grown by IQE to SemiNex’s exacting specifications. This business approach allows SemiNex to scale its operations while controlling cost, maintaining quality and exceeding customers’ expectations.

Neal Stoker, SemiNex VP of Sales and Marketing, shares that this business model allows the company to be innovative when faced with specific customer request. “Having IQE as a partner in the supply chain allows us to be more responsive, more creative and quicker to market.”

Dr. John Callahan, Ph.D. states, “For several years IQE has supplied SemiNex with superior product. Their quality, attention to detail, and flexibility has allowed SemiNex to expand its business offerings. We are thankful for this partnership and we look forward to working together for several years to come.”

Andrew Joel, Business Development Director at IQE Photonics adds, “We are proud to supply SemiNex with our wafers; we believe that their strong commitment to continuous improvement and innovation embodies and furthers our own values and commitments. The expansion of Photonics from traditional core markets into new high volume consumer segments presents an exciting opportunity for both companies.”
