Richmond, VA, November 29, 2018 – AdvanceTEC, a leader in cleanroom design, construction and process integration, today announced that the company has been awarded the turn-key design/build contract for construction of VueReal’s Advanced Nanofab Cleanroom in Waterloo Ontario, Canada. In addition to turn-key design/build of the cleanroom, VueReal, a developer of key technologies for micro-LED devices, has also contracted AdvanceTEC to perform process integration and distribution of high-purity, mission-critical utilities for the facility. The contract is held by AdvanceTEC Canada, Ltd, the wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary of AdvanceTEC, LLC.
“This project is a critical enabler of VueReal’s aggressive growth strategy as we continue to develop key technologies for micro-LED devices,” noted Reza Chaji, VueReal’s Founder and CEO. “We selected AdvanceTEC because it was clear that they understood our business requirements and were committed to a transparent approach in working with our team. We were also impressed by the breadth of their nanotech semiconductor fabrication experience, coupled with the deep technical competency of the full AdvanceTEC team.”
“AdvanceTEC’s proven project track record at the University of Waterloo’s Quantum Nano Centre (QNC) also factored into our decision,” added Dave Miller, VueReal’s CFO. “In that project, AdvanceTEC demonstrated not only their expertise in cleanroom construction, but just as importantly their knowledge of process integration and tool installation – and the power of their advanced 3D BIM modeling and coordination. We are confident in our selection, and look forward to the successful completion of this exciting project for VueReal.”
“AdvanceTEC is excited to have been selected to support VueReal’s aggressive plan to bring their emerging and disruptive technologies to market,” commented Bryan Phelan, AdvanceTEC managing partner and director of sales, marketing and business development. “We understand VueReal’s critical technical and business requirements for their advanced micro-LED products, and they align tightly with our capabilities. We are proud to provide our turnkey design/build, process integration and utility distribution skillset to the first phase of this important pilot production project that also meets VueReal's criteria to offer scale for high volume production capabilities in the near future.”
