In addition, ASMPT has also successfully earned, for consecutive year, the coveted „10 BEST Focused Suppliers of Chip Making Equipment“ award in 2015 as well as „THE BEST Suppliers of 2015“ award under Assembly Equipment category in the 2015 Customer Satisfaction Survey carried out by VLSIresearch.
Mr. Lee Wai Kwong, CEO of ASMPT, said, „2014 was indeed a very strong year for the semiconductor back-end equipment market. Compared with a year ago, our back-end equipment revenue increased by 30.8% in 2014, surpassing the strong 29% growth in the global assembly equipment market as reported by VLSIresearch, reflecting our continued market share gain.
Mr. Lee further added that, „In the past few years, while remaining committed to the mainstream die and wire bonding interconnection technologies, ASMPT has been diversifying more into Advanced Packaging applications (including but not limited to Thermo Compression Bonding) and also other areas which are not sensitive to changes in interconnection technologies such as encapsulation and clip bonding (for power management devices). In the recent past, we have grown to be the leading global suppliers for test handlers of small packages, such as 0603, as well as CMOS Image Sensor Equipment. In the meantime, we have also been actively adding advanced/leading technologies to our product portfolio including the laser dicing and grooving business which we acquired early last year. These strategic initiatives have been instrumental in positioning ASMPT as the choice technology partner of our customers and at the same time helping ASMPT to maintain our global leadership position in the back-end equipment market which we first attained in 2002.“
In VLSIresearch’s Customer Satisfaction Survey, ASMPT has earned the „10 BEST Focused Suppliers of Chip Making Equipment“ award and „THE BEST Suppliers of 2015“ award under Assembly Equipment category, ranking ASMPT at No. 3 in both awards. In VLSIresearch’s rigorous Customer Satisfaction Survey, participants from around the world were asked to rate equipment suppliers in fifteen categories based on three key factors, namely supplier performance, customer service, and product performance.
„We are very pleased indeed to have achieved these significant accolades from VLSIresearch. This definitely underscores our excellent product quality and performance as well as our customer service and support. Our sustained belief and investment in R&D is keeping us at the forefront of technology innovation and our belief and investment are clearly paying off as our growth continues, as endorsed by our valued customers“, said Mr. Lee.
„Last but not least, the successful investment which ASMPT has made in the SMT Solutions business has helped us to better serve our customers, through our ability to address the convergence of the Assembly and SMT technologies. In this respect, one distinct example is the growing opportunity in SiP (System in Package) which we are now able to offer better solutions to our customers as a result of the synergies between our back-end and SMT equipment businesses“, concluded Mr. Lee.
