Posted on February 7, 2013 @ 02:25 pm

Heraeus Precious Metals, business group of the German precious metal and technology group Heraeus, has purchased Ferro Corporation’s solar paste business unit. Heraeus acquires the assets including intellectual property associated with development and production of metallization pastes for solar cells.

The former Ferro activities will be integrated in the Photovoltaics Business Unit of Heraeus, a leading innovator and supplier of metallization pastes for solar cells. With the signing of the contract on Feb. 6, 2013, Heraeus continues its long-term commitment to photovoltaics.

"We are confident in the future growth of the photovoltaic industry. The merger of Heraeus' innovation and industry leadership with Ferro's PV history and technology will strengthen our competence as a supplier to the cell producers globally", said Dr. Ralf Droste, executive vice president of Heraeus Precious Metals.

Ferro has more than a 30-year history of developing thick-film pastes, including for the photovoltaics industry. Heraeus has produced thick film pastes for more than forty years and solar pastes since 2008.
