Xu Wei, secretary-general of the Shanghai Integrated Circuit Industry Association, said that in the face of the COVID-19 epidemic, the IC industry in Shanghai showed a generally stable trend in the first half of 2020 thanks to the efforts made by leading IC enterprises such as Disco Hi-tec.

As one of the world's leading suppliers of key IC equipment, Disco Hi-tec is expected to play an important role in speeding up the quality development of Shanghai's IC industry, Xu said.

Founded in 1998, Disco Hi-tec (China) has been an important part of the company's global strategy, and generated sales revenue of more than 1.2 billion yuan ($171 million) in 2019, with tax revenue over 60 million yuan.
