EUV machine parts
Total sourcing spend
Our Sourcing & Supply Chain colleagues are involved throughout ASML’s entire business, all the way from idea to working product. They work around the world finding the right suppliers, making sure our customers have the parts they need in time, and helping to reduce environmental impact and waste.
Working in Sourcing & Supply Chain
Sourcing & Supply Chain offers a wide variety of roles, from operational to strategic, from collaborative to more independent, and from PhD-level to vocational. You’ll get to work with some of the best global supply chain professionals in the semiconductor industry. Together, your challenge will be to deliver the right materials to the right place at the right time, in the right quantities and at the right cost.
A broad supplier network
85% of the parts in our machines are produced by our suppliers, and when it comes to relationships, we’re in it for the long run. This means that suppliers are involved in our product development from the early stages, helping us to deliver the most effective solutions. For example, our innovation partnerships with the German lens manufacturer ZEISS and others date back to our early years. The bulk of our suppliers are located in the Netherlands and EMEA, but we rely on a large and growing network in North America and Asia. Most of our supply chain investment is concentrated on around 200 ‘critical’ suppliers.
Our Sourcing & Supply Chain colleagues work with people from nearly every single department in ASML. They align closely with R&D to ensure the manufacturability of our designs, and collaborate with Customer Support to make sure our customers have the parts they need.
“I really like working in Sourcing & Supply Chain because it's a dynamic environment, that involves flexibility and outside- the- box thinking. My colleagues are highly ambitious and we work closely to achieve supply chain excellence."
– Andreea El Bouazzaoui, supplier quality manager
Sustainability & waste reduction
We work with our suppliers to understand how products are sourced and to ensure that the principles of sustainability are upheld. Together, we meet or exceed requirements set out in the RBA (Responsible Business Alliance) Code of Conduct.
We retrieve old parts from our customer sites and re-use, repair and learn from them as much as we can. Our supplier sustainability program holds our suppliers to standards for carbon emissions and waste reduction.
