Meyer Burger announces strategic cooperation agreement between Roth & Rau B.V. and Rolic Technologies
Meyer Burger Group member Roth & Rau B.V. has signed a far reaching cooperation agreement with Rolic Technologies outlining a joint strategy to develop product offerings for the organic electronics, display, and security markets.
Roth & Rau B.V., a Group member of Meyer Burger Technology Ltd (SIX Swiss Exchange: MBTN), and Rolic Technologies Ltd announce that they will cooperate on the development and industrialisation of system solutions for organic electronics. The partnership will bring together Rolic’s competences in materials and device fabrication and Roth & Rau’s expertise in integrated process equipment. In an initial stage, the companies will develop and offer barrier and encapsulation technologies. These products are seen as enablers for the flexible organic electronics (OE), organic light emitting diode (OLED) and the organic photovoltaics (OPV) markets. Further projects involving flat panel displays (FPD) and for security industries will follow. As part of the strategic cooperation agreement, Rolic has acquired an innovative cluster system for barrier coatings in OLED production from Roth & Rau B.V. which will play a key role in the joint technology development projects. Delivery and ramp-up of the equipment is scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year.
