Montreal, Quebec (PRWEB) May 28, 2009
Targray Technology International announces that it has signed a long-term partnership agreement with Peak Sun Materials for the exclusive supply of the highest quality Phosphorus Oxychloride (POCl3) to the Solar Industry. POCl3 is a high-purity liquid Phosphorus used as an N-Type dopant for silicon wafers. Under the terms of the agreement, Targray is now the exclusive supplier of Peak Sun's high quality POCl3 to the North American, European, Indian and Australian Solar markets.
"We're pleased to be working with a company like Peak Sun," states Dan Murray, Targray Vice-President. "Their manufacturing capabilities, commitment to quality and continuous product improvement make them an ideal partner for us. We're excited about the tremendous value their product brings to customers in the critical Phosphorus diffusion process."
Peak Sun's President and CEO, John Schumacher, has more than 30 years experience manufacturing and delivering high purity chemicals, including POCl3, to the semiconductor and photovoltaic industries. The POCl3 team at Peak Sun has a combined 75+ years experience safely delivering high purity chemicals and improving device yield through improved process control for their customers.
"Today, Peak Sun's experience and manufacturing capabilities enable us to make the best quality POCl3 in the world," states Scott Schumacher, Vice President of Peak Sun. "Our partnership with Targray gives us the ability to serve the North American, European, Indian, and Australian markets with an experienced, highly-technical sales force dedicated to the Solar industry. This combined with their extensive worldwide sales and warehousing infrastructure, makes the partnership a perfect fit."
Prior to founding Peak Sun, John Schumacher started and sold several other successful commercial ventures, including the J.C. Schumacher Company which was the world's dominant chemical-vapor-deposition materials and equipment supplier, and CEMi an innovative air pollution control equipment products manufacturer.
"The Peak Sun POCl3 is the highest purity POCl3 available to the solar cell manufacturing industry today," states Jack Bardakjian, Product Manager at Targray. "Peak Sun is not only committed to manufacturing the best POCl3; the Five-Star grade has even lower levels of trace elements than the standard grade. For manufacturers, this means better bin distribution, improved minority carrier lifetimes which contribute to higher efficiencies and a lower manufacturing cost per watt."
