Singulus Mastering and Bekaert extend and expand participation in Holst Centre

Bekaert, a world leader in advanced metal transformation and advanced materials and coatings, joined the two Holst Centre program lines on wireless autonomous transducer systems and system-in-foil in May 2006. After a successful two-year collaboration, the company decided to extend and considerably increase its commitment.

Singulus Mastering, market leader for optical disc production lines, enters into a full partnership in the Holst Centre lithography on foil program after an initial feasibility study that started in 2007. Erwin Meinders, Holst Centre Program Manager Lithography on Foil: "We are pleased to notice that our business model of consulting potential partners for the definition of a shared roadmap effectively leads to a win-win collaboration agreement that leaves room for various parties to join."
