mechatronic systemtechnik GmbH Unveils Its New Technology Center in Fürnitz

Published: May 06,2024

mechatronic systemtechnik GmbH (mechatronic) announces the opening of its new cutting-edge technology center in Fürnitz. An investment exceeding EUR 20 million in value, the new facility spans 6,500m2 across three storeys and includes a progressive clean room and laboratory, which are central to the planning, development, and production of the company’s advanced systems.

Founded in 1998, mechatronic specializes in addressing the semiconductor industry’s needs for reliable, safe, and fully automated handling of non-standard substrates — including stacked, thin, or warped wafers, as well as eWLP, MEMS, TAIKO, bumped, and film frames.

The company achieved an average annual growth rate of 20% over the last five years, and this move is essential in order to meet burgeoning customer demand and accommodate future development. In response to the need for greater operational capacity, the management team made a strategic decision to relocate to Fürnitz from its Villach site.

“We are excited about the capabilities this new facility brings to our operations,” said Mr Walter Schober, CEO and Founder of mechatronic. “The Technology Center not only expands our production capacity but also underscores our dedication to sustainable practices.”

Environmental sustainability was a key priority in the design of the technology center. The entire building is heated and cooled using innovative methods, such as underfloor heating combined with heat recovery and concrete core activation. Workspaces are also fitted with a lighting control system that mimics natural daylight, offering employees a conducive and productive work environment. Furthermore, the building features a solar photovoltaic (PV) system [with capacity of 361 kWp] on its roof, which demonstrates mechatronic’s commitment to green technology and empowers the company to achieve its net zero carbon emissions goal.

The official opening of the technology center marks a new chapter for mechatronic, reinforcing its position as a global leader in semiconductor handling solutions.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Mr. Philip Yeo, Chairman of Accuron Technologies remarked, “This new Technology Center is a milestone for both mechatronic and the Accuron Group. It demonstrates our long-term commitment to subsidiaries, employees, and host countries. We look forward to celebrating mechatronic’s achievements and industry contributions in the years ahead.”

mechatronic joined the Accuron family in 2017. The investment made by Accuron reflects a strong belief in the company’s potential, alongside shared values of innovation, quality, and excellence.

The Fürnitz site is around 35% larger than the current facility and will accommodate approximately 130 employees, with plans for additional recruitment to support future growth. Interested candidates are encouraged to visit the company's website at www.mechatronic.at for more information.
