Dutch-Based ASML Expands Wilton, Connecticut, Operations
ASML is the latest international company to make a significant investment in American semiconductor manufacturing during the Biden-Harris administration. This announcement comes as the Bipartisan Innovation Act, legislation that would invest $52 billion in the research, development, and production of semiconductors in the United States, advances closer towards final passage before Congress, according to company officials.
“The semiconductor industry’s growth continues apace. To meet projected demand in the years ahead ASML is investing in infrastructure and people. Our Wilton, CT office is a good example of that investment and one of several sites in the US that are fundamental to ASML’s success, said President and CEO Peter Wennink.”
ASML Wilton is the largest R&D and manufacturing site for ASML in the US. With over 2,000 employees and $100 million already invested in cleanrooms, labs, and offices, ASML Wilton is a vital design, engineering, and production center, developing the machines necessary to create advanced chips to meet increasing global demand.
“Since day one, the Biden administration has pledged to revitalize our domestic manufacturing economy and keep our country safe. Achieving these goals starts and ends with advanced semiconductors made right here in the United States,” said Deputy Secretary of Commerce Don Graves. “Semiconductors power everything from our homes and cars to lifesaving military and medical technology. ASML is a valued member of the coalition of private sector companies from around the globe who are choosing the United States as their home for semiconductors, and for that, we are immensely grateful. We need to build on this momentum by getting the Bipartisan Innovation Act to the President’s Desk for signature because it is critical to our economic and national security.”
