It delivered its first Plasma Chemical Vapor Deposition product for a-Si solar cells research in the same year. From its modest beginnings, Samco has now grown into a multi-million dollar worldwide corporation with more than 200 employees delivering process solutions for both research and production to our “Partners in Progress”. Samco continues to keep its business venture spirit.
