CoorsTek Holds Grand Opening for Newest Facility in South Korea

GUMI CITY, May 16 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    - All-new custom factory expected to enhance service levels and expand presence in Asia-Pacific


    Today, CoorsTek held a grand opening ceremony at their newest technical ceramics

manufacturing facility in South Korea. Significant increases in demand for high-purity and other

specialty ceramics, primarily for the semiconductor manufacturing and flat-panel display industries,

fueled the additional facility.

    The grand opening started at 11:30 a.m. local time and included Mr. Nam Yoo-Chin, Mayor of

Gumi City; Mr. KwanYong Kim, Governor of Gyeonsgsangbuk-do;  Mr. TaeHwan Kim, Member of

Korean National Assembly; Dr. John K. Coors, President, CEO, and Chairman of CoorsTek; Mr.

Mark Petty, Executive Vice President of CoorsTek, Inc.; Mr. Cha Eun-Suk, President of CoorsTek

Korea, and  roughly 200 spectators.

    The new facility, located in Gumi City, Korea, will be more than three times larger than their

current location in Kyungbook and will serve as a manufacturing hub for most of Asia to

accommodate continued market growth in the sector. For neighboring customers including

Samsung, LG Phillips LCD, Hynix, and Magnachip Semiconductor, CoorsTek expects to offer

enhanced customer interaction, higher regionally-built content, and improved service levels.

    "This new, modern facility will significantly expand our capability and presence in the Asia-Pacific

region to serve customers worldwide," states Mr. Eun-Suk Cha, President of CoorsTek Korea, part

of CoorsTek, Inc. "Every element of the new facility was carefully considered to ensure superior
