As part of the acquisition, Schott Lithotec also gains DuPont Photomasks' photoblank production facility in Poughkeepsie, New York.

Additionally, DuPont Photomasks entered into a long-term supply agreement with Schott Lithotec, to provide continued access to commercial photoblanks. The companies have also formed a strategic alliance to jointly develop advanced photoblanks, the substrates from which photomasks are fabricated.
