We are an experienced innovation leader. This is the result of our focus on key issues and challenges within the semiconductor industry, enabling us to make a difference to our customers, employees, and company stakeholders. While challenges and opportunities may change over time, we will continue to bring our breakthrough technologies into volume manufacturing, benefiting our customers.
We are part of a fast-paced industry that continues to reshape the world. Our technology enables the semiconductor industry to drive innovation in communications, energy, transport, medicine and beyond. For example, our wafer process systems are used to manufacture smartphone microprocessors, memory chips used for cloud computing, and sensors for commercial building controls and in automated vehicles. We are committed to making positive contributions to society and striving to prevent harm to people and reduce our impact on the environment. This is the foundation of our commitment to improve the industry and communities we operate in.
We are committed to the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct and will strive to meet its goals as best we can on a global basis. We are engaging our supply chain to do the same. We have a certified global environmental management system to drive continuous improvement in environmental performance across all of our operations. We continue to focus on, and enable the achievement of, smaller device geometries, which will lead to even greater advances and opportunities in communications, energy, medicine and the positive advances of humanity. For example, our ALD technology for depositing high-k gate dielectrics enables advanced transistors to operate at lower power, reducing electricity use and extending battery life in mobile products.
At ASMI we know that meeting the needs of today cannot mean compromising the future. This is why we encourage our employees to make positive contributions to our customers and suppliers, our industry, environment, communities in which we operate, and society, reflecting our ambition to drive innovation and deliver excellence.
Within wafer processing, we focus primarily on equipment and process solutions for the deposition of thin films. We are a key player in the deposition equipment segments for ALD and epitaxy, and a focused niche player for PECVD and vertical furnaces. With our broad portfolio of technologies, we are addressing many of the key deposition applications on the semiconductor industry roadmap.
We focus on serving the top companies that produce logic chips and memory devices, which includes addressing the needs of leading foundries. By serving the leading chipmakers, we maintain an understanding of the important requirements of the next generation of device roadmaps, enabling us to develop value-added solutions to the industry’s critical issues. In many cases, new films developed for one device type can be utilized for other device types with relatively little additional development.
Over the past 50 years we have grown to become a leading global supplier
of semiconductor wafer processing equipment. A company that develops
innovative process solutions for our customers, and manages itself in the best
interests of our investors, our employees, society, and other stakeholders.
Yet now is the time to enter a new era of innovation, to embark on the next
phase of growth. We understand that this requires commitment and strength
across many areas. From innovation in R&D, to advancing new technologies
and addressing new applications. From developing our people, to creating
even stronger relationships with key customers.
This is how we will take the next leap forward.
ROADMAP TO THE FUTURE
Our roadmap to the future will enable us to not only
achieve our next phase of growth, it will ensure we
can continue to help our customers achieve their
technology roadmaps for next-generation devices.
Our technology helps drive innovation, increasing the number of scientific breakthroughs, many of which are achieved from our advanced process equipment that deposits new materials with precision and productivity, positively benefiting society in sectors from healthcare and education, to transport and energy.
For semiconductor manufacturers, scaling chips
to smaller dimensions is an ongoing challenge.
Our innovations and equipment are vital in helping make many of these transitions happen.
Striving for efﬁciency ensures that our
customers get the products, services,
and results they expect. Intensifying
our focus on efﬁciency will make us a
stronger company, ready to take the
next leap forward.
We are a multinational company that
embraces diversity in every sense
of the word. With 29 different
nationalities working across the
company, we combine our talents
to drive innovation.
Achieving our ambitions takes intelligence, knowledge, skill,
determination, and dedication. And it is this combination of
qualities that we nurture in our people.
Our goal is to impact tomorrow’s generation
as positively as we’ve impacted today’s.
Making this happen takes the xtraordinary
talent of our people, who work together
to drive innovation and deliver excellence.
Collaboration is fundamental to our
continued success; from working
with our customers to optimize our
equipment and processes to enable
their technology roadmaps, to
creating partnerships on cutting-edge
research and development.
Operational excellence is one of the essential
pillars of our strategy, which enables us to provide
our customers with the high-quality, leading-edge
products and services they demand.
R&D is central to our development,
leading to new device architectures,
new materials, and new processes
that strengthen our competitive
positioning and enable our customers
to deliver the next-generation chips.
By extending our technological scope with a
more diverse product portfolio, we can help our
customers continue to advance their business
while growing our own in new market segments.
We create long-term value for our
stakeholders in a variety of ways.
From working with our customers
to develop innovative solutions, to
ensuring value creation growth
and positive investor returns.
We are committed to positively
contributing to society and
reducing our impact on the
environment. Only then can
we truly say we are helping
create more with less.
We believe sustainability takes many forms.
From developing sustainable technology
roadmaps for our customers, to creating
a sustainable living environment for all.
Safety is a front-line requirement,
which is why our ZERO HARM!
policy outlines our vision on product
safety, and our CR policy lays out
our commitment and expectations
towards health and safety.
