Polished wafers (200mm) and epitaxial wafers (200mm)
The MEMC Southwest joint venture was formed in 1995 when MEMC purchased a 6-inch wafer facility from Texas Instruments. Shortly after the joint venture was announced, construction began on a new facility. The 200mm plant was built at a separate location from 150mm operations to facilitate future capacity expansions. The 150mm facility ceased operations in 2000.
