UnitySC Opens New Asia Offices
Inspection and metrology leader UnitySC has announced the opening of its Asia subsidiary, Unity Semiconductor Limited Company (UnitySC Asia), which was established to deliver enhanced customer support for UnitySC’s growing installed base of inspection and metrology tools throughout the region. It is headquartered at Tai-Yuan Hi-Tech Industrial Park, Jubei City, Hsinchu, Taiwan and has field offices in Singapore, Korea and Shanghai, as well as a presence in Japan.
“Asia is experiencing very strong growth in the semiconductor industry," said Kamel Ait-Mahiout, CEO, UnitySC. “We’re seeing customers ramp up new advanced packaging technologies in their factories to meet the demands of multiple market drivers. It is evident that being local is quickly becoming a requirement, so that we can provide application development along with our existing customer support capabilities. UnitySC Asia is a key piece of our growth strategy, following the recent acquisition of HSEB GmbH, which broadened our process control portfolio."
Seventy percent of UnitySC’s global customer installed base is located in Asia. The region’s rapid growth is driven by expanding markets such as wireless and connectivity, as well as automotive, which includes electric vehicles and autonomous driving. These trends are fueling increased demand for advanced packaging, power devices and sensors.
“While UnitySC has long maintained a customer service presence in Asia, growth in the region calls for a local sales force as well as experienced applications engineers who can respond to complex process questions quickly," said Patrick Desjardins, general manager, UnitySC Asia. “Moreover, as our installed base of tools grows in the region, we will be able to provide the high-quality support our customers have come to expect directly from our local offices."
UnitySC's support in Asia includes engineers, applications engineers and customer service personnel; it also offers on-site customer support and assistance.
