Semiconductor manufacturing is essential to supporting developments across the technology, electronics, automotive, scientific and healthcare sectors. A recent surge in demand has seen widespread investment in global semiconductor manufacturing capability. The investment in the new Korea facility represents a significant step forward in ensuring the supply chain capacity required to support that growth.

"Our new vacuum pump factory in Korea will play a critical role in supporting our customers as they seek to respond to the growth in global demand for semiconductors," said Geert Follens, Business Area President Vacuum Technique.

Environmental sustainability has been a key consideration in the construction of the new 16,000 m[2] facility, which utilizes advanced data technology and state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment. The new factory began production this month and will provide job opportunities for around 150 people.
