General presentation of Soitec
Soitec is a French company specialized in the production of innovative semiconductor materials. More precisely, it is one of the world's leading suppliers in this very specific sector of activity. The company's success is based on the use of cutting-edge technologies for the electronics and energy markets. It is therefore above all an innovative group that holds a portfolio of more than 3,000 patents, which enables it to offer its customers energy-efficient, high-performance and competitive products.
The Soitec Group also operates several large industrial sites, research and development facilities and sales offices in Europe and elsewhere in the world, including the United States and Asia.
The products manufactured and marketed by Soitec are mainly materials for the manufacture of electronic chips found in most of today's smartphones, tablets, computers and computer servers. But in reality, these materials are also increasingly used in the automotive industry, the connected object industry, and some medical and industrial equipment.
The product that made Soitec so popular and allowed it to achieve this interesting market position is silicon-on-insulator, also known as SOI, which inspired the choice of the company's name.
Soitec is today an international company that operates both in France, in Bernin near Grenoble, and in Singapore for its industrial centers. The company's research and development centers and its numerous sales offices are located mainly in France, but also in the United States, California and Arizona, China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan.
Today, the Soitec Group employs more than 1,000 people in its various centers and offices around the world.
