SiC Processing Shuts down Production in Herøya

Latest by end of June 2012 SiC Processing AS, a subsidiary of the SiC Processing Group, closed its production site in Herøya.

Caused by the permanent close-down of all production facilities for wafers at its main customer in Herøya, the operation of the slurry recycling plant of SiC Processing is no longer cost efficient and economic. Thus 4 production lines at plant Herøya II with an annual capacity of 44000 t are affected, in addition to the 2 lines at plant Herøya I already closed down in July 2011. As a result, ca. 100 employees will have to be laid off at location Herøya. The business relation between SiC Processing and its customer is based upon long-term slurry supply contracts with durations until 2019. Both parties are currently discussing further steps and proceedings.
