In 2005, Rubicon's revenue and profit will be a new high 6-inch sapphire crystal rod will be the focus of 2011 expansion

Sapphire is now the mainstream material for the production of blue and white LEDs. The global sapphire crystal bar manufacturer Rubicon was founded in 2000. It mainly supplies sapphire single crystals and uses other crystallization techniques to manufacture IT components. The Kyropolus method produces sapphire crystal rods, which are relatively advantageous in terms of low defect density (Low Defect Density).

Rubicon sapphire crystal rods are mainly supplied to LEDs, Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFICs), blue lasers, optical parts, etc. Among them, LED applications are now the main source of Rubicon revenue.

With the global demand for sapphire crystal rods for LEDs, significant growth since 2009, Rubicon's production capacity in the third quarter of 2010 is also fully loaded. In this context, its revenue and profit for the whole year of 2010 will record a record high, while Asia The region is its main source of revenue.

Rubicon is currently producing sapphire crystal rods mainly in the Chicago area of ​​the United States. It has started construction of a new plant in neighboring Batavia, Illinois. The target is mass production in the first quarter of 2011. In addition, it is located in Malaysia. The new plant for the segment process will also be completed by the end of 2010.

In 2010, Rubicon has a leading position in the global sapphire crystal rod market and continues to expand its production capacity. And because Rubicon has signed a medium- and long-term supply contract for 6-inch crystal rods with several LED factories, it expects that the 6-inch crystal rod will account for a further increase in its revenue after the mass production of the new Batavia plant. The use of crystal rods will be the focus of Rubicon development in 2011.
