Semiconductor supply company moving to larger space in Chandler
PHOENIX – A company based in the Netherlands that supplies products and support to semiconductor manufacturers is increasing its presence in metro Phoenix.
ASML is moving into a different building in the Chandler business park it currently occupies, providing space for a larger workforce.
“We have enjoyed operating in Chandler over many years and ASML is excited to announce this additional hiring growth to support our local customers,” Scott Wiberg, location manager at ASML Chandler, said Wednesday in a press release.
“Chandler continues to be a place where companies like ours can recruit a diverse and talented workforce, and we look forward to supporting the expansion of local semiconductor manufacturing capabilities from our new office.”
Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC, the world’s largest semiconductor foundry, is building a $12 billion production facility in Phoenix that’s expected to open in 2024. Also, chipmaker Intel is investing $20 billion to expand its Chandler manufacturing operations.
ASML signed a seven-year sublease on 38,000 square feet of office space at the Chandler Freeway Crossing business park near the Loop 101 Price Freeway and Loop 202 Santan Freeway interchange.
The company plans to move into the new building in December and increase the number of employees at the site from 300 to 400 over the next few years.
The Chandler office is home to ASML’s U.S. global customer support center along with sales and other support departments.
The company plans to grow its engineering staff at the location, with hiring beginning this summer.
ASML has more than 60 locations in 16 countries, with 18 U.S. offices. The company provides hardware, software and services used by microchip producers.
“Chandler continues to work with companies from all facets of the semiconductor supply chain that are looking to expand,” Mayor Kevin Hartke said in the release.
“ASML has had a long-term presence in Chandler and we are thrilled to see them recommit to Chandler with this long-term sublease.”
