HUNGERFORD, United Kingdom--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Advanced Materials group of Materion Corporation (NYSE:MTRN) has been designated “2015 Supplier of the Year” by Plessey, a leading British expert in the development and manufacture of semiconductor products. The award is presented to critical material suppliers who achieve maximum scores in Plessey’s annual review process.
During 2014, Materion provided precious and non-precious metals to Plessey for use in its MaGIC™process, an innovative approach to high-brightness light-emitting diode (LED) production.
