Linton Crystal Technologies to bring semiconductor manufacturing back to U.S.

Feb. 23, 2023
Although a site has not been selected yet, the company plans to break ground in Q2 of this year.

Linton Crystal Technologies (LCT) plans to open a new U.S.  manufacturing facility where it will produce semiconductor and solar manufacturing equipment. Although a site has not been selected yet, the company plans to break ground in Q2 of this year. Spurred by the Inflation Reduction Act, LCT plans to select a location with the potential for future expansions as the company fulfills orders for international customers. At this facility LCT will also demonstrate all products produced by the company, including Czochralski furnaces for monocrystalline silicon ingots and the machines for producing solar ingots and wafers.

In a recent quote, Todd Barnum, president and COO of Linton Crystal Technologies, said, “We’ve been working on this plan for a while now and are looking forward to reshoring manufacturing to the United States. As a U.S. company with Chinese ownership, Linton Technologies Group, the geopolitical issues have been difficult to navigate. Our company used to manufacture in Rochester and we’re eager to get back to the United States.”
