Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq: IVAC), a leading supplier of thin-film processing systems, today announced the receipt of an $11 million order for 200 Lean® systems. These systems are currently scheduled to be delivered in the second half of 2023.
“We are pleased to announce our fourth significant HDD order within the last six months,” said Nigel Hunton, Intevac’s president and chief executive officer. “In November of last year, we announced a $10 million order that represented the very beginning of the media capacity addition plans for the industry. In February, we announced a multi-year refurbishment and upgrade agreement valued at over $20 million, which will add media capacity for this leading data storage customer. Last month, we announced a $54 million system order, which was followed up by today’s order announcement for an additional $11 million in systems. Our visibility and backlog are the strongest we’ve seen in at least 12 years, and we have firmly established the 200 Lean as the platform of choice for all media capacity being added to the industry right now.”
We are a leader in the design and development of high-productivity, thin-film processing systems. Our production-proven platforms are designed for high-volume manufacturing of substrates with precise thin film properties, such as the hard drive media, display cover panel, solar photovoltaic, and advanced semiconductor packaging markets we serve currently.
