WILTON - U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy recently announced this week’s “Murphy’s Monday Manufacturer,” ASML, a hardware and software solutions manufacturer with decades of history in the optical lithography field.

ASML was founded in 1984 and sells hardware and software solutions to chipmakers around the world.

ASML has 19,000 employees worldwide. The company is headqueartered in Veldhoven, Netherlands, and has more than 60 offices in 16 countries.

The company has a design engineering and manufacturing plant in Wilton, which was acquired in 2001. ASML employs 1,600 people in the 297,000-square-foot Wilton facility.

ASML opened a new testing and measurement lab in Wilton in 2018, part of a renovation that added 16,000 square feet. This year, the company built a six-story parking garage, adding 550 spots. The company plans on more expansions this year.

ASML also supports STEM education initiatives. The company is involved in the CT STEM Foundation and encourages training younger people in science and technology.

“ASML is a leader in technology,” Murphy said. “I thank them for their nearly 20-year commitment to manufacturing in Connecticut. I am particularly proud of the work they are doing to invest in STEM education so our students are prepared on day one for these good-paying jobs. I’m proud to highlight the great work ASML is doing in Connecticut and look forward to working with them as they continue to grow.”

ASML’s customers include Intel, Samsung, TSMC and GlobalFoundries.

“At ASML Wilton, the co-location of design engineering, procurement and manufacturing creates an inspiring environment. We have a culture of continuous improvement focused on improving quality, cost and delivery time,” Bill Amalfitano, vice president of ASML’s Wilton factory, said. “In our business, time to market is very important. This means eliminating waste and inefficiencies, which we achieve by practicing a best-in-class lean manufacturing philosophy.”
