PLAINVIEW, N.Y. & SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 15, 2010 — Veeco Instruments Inc., a maker of equipment used to manufacture LEDs, solar panels and hard disk drives, will significantly expand its presence in Asia to better support the rapid growth of the LED industry there, company CEO John R. Peeler announced this week at the 7th China International Forum for Solid State Lighting.

“We see a tremendous opportunity to help our Asian customers to ‘go faster’ to advance brightness and decrease the cost of LEDs,” said Peeler. "As our Asian customers continue to accelerate the pace of adoption of LEDs for consumer electronics and solid-state lighting, we believe this strategic investment of more than $25 million will position Veeco as the region's top equipment supplier and ensure the mutual success of Veeco and our customers. Over time, we will also leverage these new sites to support our customers in solar and other clean tech markets."

The company will provide an "unprecedented" level of technology development on latest-generation metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems, as well as customer training and support, Peeler said.
