|Our partnership with the SEZ Group|
We, the Perau-Gymnasium, are proud to have signed a partnership contract this school term with the SEZ AG Villach, after similar partnerships with OMYA and CA in 1992 respectively 1995.
The SEZ Group develops, produces and markets equipment for the semiconductor industry and concentrates on the production of wet-etching equipment for processing the frontside of wafers. Its customer list includes leading world semiconductor manufacturers such as Siemens, Toshiba, IBM SGS Thomson etc.
The development of the SEZ Group is a true success story of the sort usually only to be found in US reports. In 1986 Egon Putzi and Franz Sumnitsch founded SEZ in Bad Bleiberg. Already in 1990 the first "spin-etchers" were being sent to European semiconductor manufacturers. In 1992 SEZ moved into new premises in Villach, Draubodenweg 29. Subsidiaries in USA and UK were established, a joint venture in Japan followed and strategic alliances were formed in Taiwan, South Corea, Singapoure and France.
The SEZ Group's operational headquarters remain in Villach with about 180 highly motivated employees. Permanent on-going training, personal responsibility and teamwork are the key factors in SEZ management philosophy.
This concept of on-going training and development is a goal shared by both SEZ and our school. We hope the permanent exchange of ideas with the young will consolidate this partnership and lead to new and challenging paths to be followed together by school and industry.
Here and now we want to say thank you again to Mr Peter Grünwald for his engagement in developing this partnership!
