Yacht Nederland BV - Veldhoven

ASML is a Dutch high-tech company and one of the main suppliers of machines for the semiconductor industry, in particular steppers and scanners, used in the manufacturing of chips. Customers are mostly chip producers. ASML's head office and business complex is located in Veldhoven, where both research and development and assembly in clean rooms takes place. The company also has sixty service points in fourteen countries to support the installation and delivery of machines and spare parts.


ASML originated from a joint venture of ASM International and Koninklijke Philips. ASML delivers worldwide, but most of its customers are based in Asia. In 2011, 66% of sales were generated in that region, 25% in the United States and just under 9% in Europe. The largest customer was responsible for a quarter of the total turnover. ASML's main supplier is Zeiss, a manufacturer of lenses and optical components. Zeiss's share in ASML's total purchasing costs is slightly less than 30%. Due to the great mutual interests, both companies have entered into a strategic alliance; this can only be terminated if one of the parties gives notice three years in advance. ASML spends a lot of money on research and development;
