EV Group (EVG), a supplier of wafer bonding and lithography equipment for the MEMS, nanotechnology and semiconductor markets, today announced that it has opened a new, wholly owned subsidiary in Shanghai, called EV Group China Ltd., which will serve as regional headquarters for all of EVG’s operations in China. The new subsidiary, which houses a local service center and spare parts management facility, will further strengthen EVG’s presence in the region and support the company’s ongoing efforts to improve service and response times to local customers.
As China continues to increase its technology development efforts to become a leading manufacturing region for the semiconductor, compound semiconductor, power device, advanced packaging, light emitting diode (LED) and MEMS industries, EVG has expanded its operations in order to be more effective and efficient in meeting the needs of its growing customer base in the region. EV Group China Ltd. is an integral part of EVG’s worldwide customer support network, serving as the first point of contact for all service and customer support issues.
“The opening of our new EV Group China subsidiary affords us a great opportunity to continue to deliver on our commitment to provide on-demand, stellar service that our customers have come to expect from EVG. The significant growth in business that we’ve seen in China, coupled with the continued huge market potential in this region, makes establishing a new subsidiary in China an effective way to continue to build upon our presence here and strengthen support for our local customers and partners,” said Hermann Waltl, executive sales and customer support director at EV Group.
EVG has had an active presence in China for more than a decade. Success in this region has allowed order intake from Chinese customers to multiply over the past several years. EVG has now established five wholly owned subsidiaries across the globe.
