ASML is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of chip-making equipment.
The vision is to enable affordable microelectronics that improve the quality of life.
To achieve this, the mission is to invent, develop, manufacture and service advanced technology for high-tech lithography, metrology and software solutions for the semiconductor industry.
ASML’s guiding principle is continuing Moore’s Law towards ever smaller, cheaper, more powerful and energy-efficient semiconductors. This results in increasingly powerful and capable electronics that enable the world to progress within a multitude of fields, including healthcare, technology, communications, energy, mobility, and entertainment.
ASML is a focused supplier of equipment to IC manufacturers, providing high-performance lithography, metrology and software solutions that enable our customers to continue the feature shrink that underpins Moore’s Law in a cost-effective way. Where there is a compelling customer benefit and industrial logic, ASML may expand into adjacent markets serving IC manufacturers. Finally, with a view to the future, ASML will explore areas outside of IC or lithography where ASML can apply there strengths in creating advanced systems that are geared for high throughput, reliable operation and extreme accuracy. To realize this ASML focuses the internal efforts on technology leadership, strong customer and supplier relationships, and great people. This is complemented with showing responsible behavior as a prerequisite in executing the strategy.
