CoorsTek, Inc. is expanding the capacity of its subsidiary, CoorsTek
Korea, to include lasered substrates. These ceramic substrates are
used in the production of electronic circuits for the
telecommunications and automotive markets. CoorsTek Korea is
installing state-of-the-art laser equipment using technology
developed and refined by CoorsTek in the U.S. and Scotland. The
expansion in Korea reportedly enhances CoorsTek's position as the
world's leading producer of thick-film and thin-film substrates and
extends its offering of lasered substrates to all key global markets.
CoorsTek Korea is expected to begin production of the lasered
substrates during the first quarter of 2001.
