FMC Corporation (NYSE:FMC) was awarded Texas Instruments (TI) 2012 Supplier Excellence Award (SEA) for its ultra-high-purity hydrogen peroxide, produced by FMC Peroxygens, a division of FMC Industrial Chemicals.
Texas Instruments annually recognizes less than 0.1 percent of its more than 12,000 suppliers, for delivering outstanding products, service and support. The recipients are evaluated based on a variety of attributes such as quality, technology, responsiveness, value, assurance of supply and environmental and social responsibility.
“FMC and TI have had a decade-long partnership in which we’ve collaborated to improve technology, supply chains and overall value related to business growth,” said Bruce Lerner, vice president and global business director, Global Peroxygens Division at FMC Corporation. “We’re pleased to be seen as a reliable, value added partner in providing these critical products, services and expertise.”
Hydrogen peroxide is a “green” oxidant used in the semiconductor industry to clean and polish silicon wafers in their manufacture towards chips. Hydrogen peroxide is the chemical that most frequently contacts the wafer throughout the multi-stage manufacturing process. FMC produces a wide range of peroxide concentrations and purities for the electronics, food safety, environmental, energy, and other industries. FMC continues to pioneer new uses for this versatile, dependable and environmentally desirable chemical as well as new and innovative ways to safely and cost effectively store and handle hydrogen peroxide.
