The company has built a strong reputation for technology and market leadership, particularly in new semiconductor applications, and has significant growth potential driven by its ambitious strategy," said Ait-Mahiout. “The combination of great in-house technologies, high-value products, growth based on a solid backlog of profitable revenue, and a group of very talented employees in a dynamic and innovative company culture is a recipe for success and makes for a very exciting CEO opportunity. I am delighted to bring my experience to guide the company through its next growth phase and make it a key player in semiconductor process control."
