US Semicon: NTS as strategic partner

Boosted by the US CHIPS Act, the semiconductor market in the United States is expected to grow up to an 87 billion dollar in revenue by 2027. Big players in the US like Nvidia, Broadcom and Intel are shaping this growing market. Pivotal in this growth are wafer fab equipment manufacturers, like Applied Materials and KLA. The Netherlands, which is already home to ASML, ASMI and NTS amongst others, makes a perfect key partner for furthering the Semicon industry in US. NTS is one of the leading first-tier contract manufacturers for wafer fab equipment manufacturers. Focused on developing cutting-edge mechatronics for the semiconductor and analytical market, NTS has been in the US since 2014. Stepping up in the American market now, is an obvious next phase in its continuing rapid growth.

NTS expansion in US

As part of its global strategy, NTS is focused on increasing its capabilities in the US, both in footprint and talent. The company is actively engaged in an expansive recruitment drive, targeting skilled local professionals in the field of Development & Engineering and commercial program management, to bolster its US team. It has also moved to a new location in Milpitas, in December 2023, creating a hub for collaboration and innovation at the heart of Silicon Valley. The new location will not only accommodate the company's growth trajectory but also strengthen partnerships with key players in the US semiconductor industry.

The strategic placement on the West Coast ensures seamless connectivity with American wafer fab equipment manufacturers and NTS's manufacturing sites in Europe and Asia, keeping it at the forefront of the rapidly advancing high-tech manufacturing landscape. This proactive approach positions NTS to meet the increasing demands of high-tech Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) based in the US.
