July 11, 2006 — /EV GROUP/ — EV Group (EVG) who this year celebrates “25 years ahead” in the MEMS and semiconductor industry and with more than 15 years high volume manufacturing experience, once again stays “ahead” by announcing availability of the new online shopping platform. The “EVG-TShop” is unique, as it is the first time a MEMS and semiconductor process equipment manufacturer has offered an e-commerce sales platform to the marketplace. The “EVG-TShop” offers selected new and refurbished equipment with warranty out of EVG’s wafer processing equipment portfolio. In recognition of the ever increasing worldwide web activities, EVG offers an ideal way to shop for and purchase equipment. The EVG-TShop provides spare parts, service packages, equipment of selected third party manufacturers and offers customers advanced bidding functions on selected products in their shop.
Tailored to meet today’s market requirements for a quick and time-saving purchase, buyers will easily find their way to the tools of choice through convenient and easy navigation tools. A product-oriented structure facilitates quick access to current offers and links to corresponding technical data. The most valuable function of this site for customers is that they have all commercial and technical information needed for a purchase available through a mouse click.
“We think it’s essential for EVG to offer our customers an effective online purchasing solution. We know our customers will find this a valuable and easy to use tool. We are glad to provide the first ever online shop by a MEMS and semiconductor process equipment manufacturer.” says Erich Thallner CEO and founder of EV Group
