The largest and most advanced semiconductor foundry in mainland China, the Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC), has awarded M+W Group its prestigious Supplier of the Year Award. The award was presented to M+W Group for its delivery of a total turnkey cleanroom solution two weeks ahead of schedule.
SMIC’s annual Supplier of the Year award is provided to suppliers who go above and beyond the call of duty in order to exceed expectations. Mr. Wang Lin from SMIC states: “We were very impressed with the way the M+W team delivered on our requirements for a total cleanroom solution. The project required M+W to be flexible and work with the various partners at all levels. All communications and tasks were handled to the highest standards of professionalism, and, most impressively, we received exactly what we required two weeks ahead of the deadline.”

SMIC is one of the leading advanced semiconductor manufacturers in China and a major player in the recently announced China Semiconductor Initiative. As its supplier, M+W Group is exceptionally proud and honored to be the recipient of the SMIC Supplier of the Year Award. “This is a fantastic achievement by the M+W team, and one that goes to prove our ability to deliver highly complex turnkey cleanroom solutions both on time and within budget,” explains Thomas Bernhardt, Managing Director Asia at M+W Products, a subsidiary of M+W Group. “Throughout the project, SMIC required a variety of changes to be made to the original specifications. Our team of highly trained professionals were able to implement the changes and still deliver ahead of the deadline. As a result, SMIC were able to use the cleanroom earlier than expected, enabling them to deliver integrated circuitry foundry and technology services to clients in a quicker timeframe than planned.”
