Connecting with our customers and suppliers

Our top priority is to provide our customers with the best possible products and services. To do this, we work closely with our suppliers to make sure they understand our customers’ needs and our sustainability standards.

We have to always focus on our customers. We talk to them continuously to specify what they need, and translate these needs into economically viable products, which add value to our customers and their customers.

On the other side of the value chain, ASML uses a very shallow outsourcing model. The largest part of the product, in terms of costs, is built at our suppliers' sites and our company mainly focuses on module assembly and testing during the manufacturing phase. Therefore, it is crucial for ASML to work closely with our suppliers. They must also meet our customers’ requirements, which increasingly include sustainability criteria, and understand our interest in contributing to a sustainable world.

During 2011, we continued to focus on delivering functional, reliable and sustainable products to our customers and on making sure our suppliers meet our ambitious technical and sustainability standards.

VBDO Responsible Supply Chain Benchmark 2011

ASML was ranked second in the electronics companies sector and sixth overall in a comparative investigation by the Dutch Association of Investors for Sustainable Development (VBDO). Conducted for the sixth time in 2011, the investigation focuses on responsible supply chain policy and the implementation and management thereof. It compared 40 of the largest Dutch publicly listed companies.
