Company description

MEMC Electronic Materials, Inc. was formed in 1984 as a Delaware corporation and completed its initial public stock offering in 1995. The company is a global leader in the manufacture and sale of wafers and has been a pioneer in the design and development of wafer technologies over the past 50 years. Its customers include major semiconductor device and solar cell (device) manufacturers. Depending on market conditions, the company also sells intermediate products such as polysilicon, silane gas, ingots and scrap wafers to semiconductor device and equipment makers, solar cell and module manufacturers, flat panel and other industries. As of 2008, MEMC Electronic Materials was engaged in one reportable industry segment -- the design, manufacture and sale of silicon wafers -- and has established a global manufacturing network consisting of nine manufacturing facilities. In addition, in 2009 the company acquired Sun Edison L.L.C. The company produces all of its requirements for granular polysilicon at its facility in Pasadena, Texas and produces chunk polysilicon in its Merano, Italy facility. It also operates laboratories throughout the United States, Italy, Japan and South Korea.
