(Singapore) – Alfa Tech Vest Asia played an active role in catalyzing Singapore’s dream to move up the production value chain and become a hub for high-tech industry players in Q2 2012 when it completed the design and construction of a 10, 000 sq. ft. Class 100 cleanroom and 1, 500 sq. ft. support office for Silecs, a Finnish supplier to the microelectronics and semiconductor industry. ATVA created some of the most high-spec production facilities in South East Asia with the turnover of this project this year.

Founded in 2000, Silecs – Solutions by Design, is an innovator of enabling materials used in the microelectronics industry, particularly for semiconductor, image sensor, and advanced packaging manufacturing. Recognizing that the opportunity for sustainable growth was tremendous in Asia over the next five to ten years, Silecs decided to undertake a large capital expansion and chose SE Asia’s IT hub Singapore to build its pilot HQ and production facility.

“Delivering an on-time on-budget completion for Silecs was really an achievement for us, given that we had only 10 weeks to get the job finished.  Using some innovative procurement and construction techniques we were able handover the certified facility to our clients within the stipulated timeline.  We were also pleased to help with all the equipment procurement and installation for their processes”, says Zach Wilson, Managing Director of Alfa Tech VestAsia. ATVA firmly adheres to its commitment of always delivering high-quality on-schedule on-budget projects for clients. “I am very proud of the work we did and the relationships of trust we established both locally and in Finland. I can’t help but attribute a significant amount of that client trust we enjoy to the investment we made in them of a full reconnaissance of their existing facility in Finland before they even gave us the contract.”

The Silecs scope of work included full design and building of complex process gas delivery and water treatment systems, multiple hazardous storage rooms and a Class 100 cleanroom to create the highly specific and controlled environment needed for the company’s production process. Furthermore, Alfa Tech also built a support office with fully furnished workstations, a pantry and conference room. It’s an honor for Alfa Tech to be engaged by Silecs for a job having such high-tech specifications. The ability to meet and exceed client expectations makes this project an indispensible milestone in Alfa Tech’s growth story. The ATVA team wishes Silecs the best success in its South East Asian expansion venture.
