Head of Semiconductor Materials

"In Delivery Systems & Services, we are a vital enabler of safety, consistency, and quality for the electronics industry"

Jeff White
Head of Delivery Systems & Services



We exist to advance digital living and are looking for the most curious and passionate people to join us. Come explore the future of electronics and help us lead the material science revolution.

Together, we’ll make life changing discoveries atom by atom.

Curious about what we do?

Semiconductors have been a game-changer in transforming Electronics - in making devices compact and powerful over the years. Almost everything we touch and interact with today contains microchips. What role do we play in making this a reality?


  • With each new generation of devices, semiconductor manufacturers work on further reducing the size of their products while at the same time achieving higher functionality and greater processing power. For example, circuits the size of a postage stamp can now accommodate nearly as many transistors as there are people on earth — about seven billion.

  • All this is made possible by the chemicals we produce — and we know there is a lot more to come. Everyday devices such as smartphones, tablets, and computers will all contribute to the growth of the semiconductor industry, but we will also see growing demands in other areas such as automotive, medical and industrial applications.
