BusinessWire: FabExchange, a private equity and divestiture partner, has completed the acquisition of ON Semiconductor’s Rochester, NY, site. 

The property was originally constructed by Eastman Kodak Company in 1959 and expanded in 1980. The building core is made up of dedicated lab space, cleanroom and surrounding office space. With space totaling 263,000 square feet, inclusive of 7 floors and a basement, the building is designed for wafer fabrication, assembly, testing, and office space.

A core objective for FabExchange is to serve as a bridge for international companies wishing to invest in manufacturing in the US.

When acquiring facilities such as this, renovation and creative reconfiguration is almost always required. However, this facility is ready and primed for use by wafer fabs for MEMS, CMOS, CCD, and DRAM, and compound semiconductors (i.e., GaN or SiC fab, biochemical) production,” said Ali Shafi, Managing Partner of FabExchange. “We have a few clients showing interest in this facility generating great momentum, setting the stage for an exciting future for this property.
