上海硅产业集团聘请MEMC前首席执行官Nabeel Gareeb,建设材料生态系统


NSIG, the officially sanctioned materials group in China, announced that they have retained Mr. Nabeel Gareeb, former CEO of MEMC Electronic Materials Inc., to help them establish a materials eco-system to support the growth of the semiconductor industry in China.

作为中国一家得到政府支持的材料集团,NSIG宣布已聘请美国MEMC电子材料公司前首席执行官Nabeel Gareeb先生,以致力于建设材料生态体系,支持中国半导体产业的成长。

Stated Dr. Xi Wang, Chairman of NSIG – “It is an honor for us to be able to obtain Mr. Gareeb’s assistance to create a more integrated supply chain in China, especially in the materials arena.  Although NSIG is only 18 months old, we are confident that with Mr. Gareeb’s guidance and leadership we will be able to establish a significant presence in China and on the world stage in a short period of time”.


Stated Mr. Kai Ren, Vice Chairman of NSIG, and Vice President of Investments at Sino IC Capital – “We are pleased to have Mr. Gareeb lead NSIG’s evolution in supporting the materials ecosystem for China.  We continue to be very supportive of NSIG’s exclusive mission, and look forward to acceleration of the work that has been started”.


Stated Mr. Gareeb – “After several years of private work, I have decided to re-engage in the public sphere to again help create enterprises that can eventually be self-funding.  Based on the customer demand, employee talent, and early institutional funding, I believe NSIG is well positioned to grow and support the burgeoning Semiconductor industry on the mainland, and I am excited to be able to assist in its evolution.  As an example, NSIG started by focusing on the wafer part of the materials eco-system, and is currently funding the installation of several hundred thousand wafers per month of 300mm wafering capacity, placing it in a unique position during a period where the industry capacity is anticipated to be fully utilized.  This capacity is starting its production ramp, and may grow to one million 300mm wafers per month to support local and global demand”.
