October 15, 2003 – Japan’s Dai Nippon Printing Co. and STMicroelectronics have opened a joint photomask plant in Agrate, Italy.

The Nihon Keizai Shimbun reports the facility, 81% owned by Dai Nippon Printing, will produce photomasks for 0.13-micron process technologies, with future plans to adopt 90nm processes. The venture will initially provide photomasks to STMicro but eventually to other firms in Europe.
