ASML is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of chip-making equipment. Headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, ASML employs more than 14,000 people.
Our vision is to enable affordable microelectronics that improve the quality of life.
Our 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.
We are 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, we may expand into adjacent markets serving IC manufacturers. Finally, with a view to the future, we will explore areas outside of IC or lithography where we can apply our strengths in creating advanced systems that are geared for high throughput, reliable operation and extreme accuracy. To realize this, we focus our 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 our strategy.
We are a multinational company with over 70 locations in 16 countries, headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands. We employ more than 14,000 people on payroll and flexible contracts (expressed in full time equivalents). ASML is traded on Euronext Amsterdam and NASDAQ under the symbol ASML.
ASML provides semiconductor manufacturers (chip makers) with highly-advanced imaging tools (lithography systems) that make the smallest, most advanced and cost-effectively produced electronic chips. These chips, or integrated circuits, are used in most computers, TV and hi-fi systems, mobile phones, MP3 players, cameras, banking cards and automotive control systems. In fact, they are at the heart of most electronic equipment used in the home, the office and on the move.
Lithography is arguably the most important and critical part of the chip production process:
ASML sponsors many local activities. Our goals are to promote technology to young people, support the communities where we are located, strengthen our employer brand and promote our company values. We want to spread the message that ASML is a great place to work, meet, share and learn. This helps the local community understand our values and therefore cultivates mutual appreciation and respect. Separate from ASML, ASML Foundation is an independent organization set up to provide financial support to charities worldwide that focus on education.
