In fact, there is a big chance ASML is part of the electronic device you’re using right now, because we are a world leading manufacturer of chip-making machines. We provide chipmakers with state-of-the-art hardware, software and services to mass produce patterns on silicon, increasing the value of a chip while making them faster, smaller and at lower manufacturing cost.

Headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, we currently employ over 36,000 people worldwide, spread across 60+ offices. In 2021, ASML’s net sales added up to 19 billion euro’s..

Within ASML, the Management Support Organization (MSO) team is organized in one central department consisting of more than 170 assistants, supporting over 500 managers. ASML is growing fast, so will the support of our ASML top managers.
