About Us

We engineer at atomic scale

We supply tools that enable atomic scale engineering for energy and electronics applications.

Our technology enables our customers to develop and mass produce next generation energy- and electronic devices with highly reduced use of scarce materials, a longer lifetime and lower energy consumption

Our Mission & Values

SALDtech’s ambition is to commercialize large-area Spatial Atomic (S-ALD) Layer Deposition technology and equipment for energy and display applications and as such become the S-ALD powerhouse. We do this by enabling our customers to minimize use of scarce materials and as such save the environment.

We do so by applying the core values we believe in:

  • we show integrity in the way we work with our partners
  • we want to be the trusted partner for our customers by doing what we promise
  • we do this as a team where everybody can contribute according his or her skills
