Teknek, the global leader in contact cleaning and yield improvement technology, continues its Asian expansion with the official opening of its office in Kobe, West Japan.

Manufacturers in electronics, Flat Panel Displays and solar cells are all looking for ways of trimming costs, improving quality and eliminating defects. Our equipment helps them deliver on these objectives.”
He added: “The opening of the Kobe office is very exciting for us as it brings us closer to our customers in the West of Japan. I am also delighted to welcome Tomoya Hiraka as the newest member of the Asian team.”

Its “clean machines” are used by leading manufacturers world-wide. The machines help manufacturers maximise production yields, cut down time and reduce waste by eliminating contamination from critical processes. Sectors served range from electronics, printing and converting to Flat Panel Displays, solar cell and medical.
