Gebr. Schmid, a systems manufacturer and process provider based in Freudenstadt Germany, and the Shimadzu Corporation of Japan, a specialist in PECVD coating units, have reached a strategic cooperation agreement in key areas. The agreement was concluded in August. Integrating the Shimadzu PECVD coating units into the photovoltaic process chain will enable Schmid to continue to optimize key process parameters in turnkey equipment, including the reproducibility and constancy of results and the scrap rate. In addition, the collaboration paves the way for the development of new cell concepts. The cooperation agreement with Schmid will substantially expand Shimadzu's marketing base. Schmid will assume the exclusive global marketing of Shimadzu's turnkey-project integrated systems. An agreement on exclusive distribution rights for Shimadzu individual equipment was reached for Europe and much of Asia.

Shimadzu Corporation was founded in 1875 and is headquartered in Kyoto, Japan. Shimadzu has more than 9,000 employees worldwide and a sales volume of some 1.9 billion Euros. In Japan, Shimadzu is one of the leading enterprises in the flat panel display and semiconductor sectors. The Shimadzu PECVD technology (for coating solar wafers with blue silicon nitride) achieves particularly even and high-quality results, which results in improved cell efficiency.
