On March 12th Beneq opened a subsidiary and operations in Saint Petersburg to commercialise its atomic layer deposition technology (ALD) in the Russian market. As part of the overall strategy, the company will sign an agreement to launch a joint laboratory for research and development of industrial applications in ALD with Saint Petersburg State Electrotechnical University (SpbGETU).
The main goal of expanding Beneq’s operations into Russia is to open up new opportunities to promote and implement cutting-edge thin film technologies. Through the launch of the new laboratory, Beneq will gain additional resources to help create globally competitive products and industrial solutions. This is a significant step in rolling out Beneq’s business development plan.
“Not only will these products and solutions be sold throughout the world, we see that thin film technologies will play a key role in the modernisation of the Russian economy,” says Sampo Ahonen, CEO of Beneq.
The launch of the laboratory is planned for the autumn of this year. Beneq will supply it with necessary tools and resources.
