Coventya is the proud recipient of Western Digital’s prestigious 2012 Supplier of the Year award. Western Digital is one of the leading hard disc drives manufacturers in the world and Coventya has been an approved supplier since 2007.
Electroless nickel plating on hard discs is widely viewed as the largest and most demanding application for EN in the world.
Nilesh Mistry, Coventya’s international product manager for data storage, offered his thoughts on the award:
“It’s always nice for our entire data storage team to gain recognition for their hard work and commitment but this industry offers little time to reflect on awards. Storage demands increase on a regular basis and delivering a nearly zero defect EN film in a high production environment requires nothing short of perfection. Our R&D works tirelessly to keep our technology in lock step with these challenges.”
Dr. Alan Ruffini, Coventya CTO added; “Success in this very difficult application delivers significant benefits to our global electroless nickel customer base as well. As EN technology advances for data storage it has had a direct impact on the level of innovation in our conventional electroless nickel portfolio.”
