    ASM’s production network wins award

    ASM SMT Solutions has won the 2018 Factory of the Year Award in the 'Outstanding Production Network' category.

    The award:

    • The benchmarking award sponsored since 1992 by Produktion magazine and consultancy A.T. Kearney is one of the most coveted honors for manufacturing companies.
    • Comprehensive assessment model with more than 100 criteria.
    • This year the panel of judges honored not just the SMT plant in Munich, but pointed out the high common process standards within the global ASM production network with its factories in Munich, Weymouth, Singapore and Malaysia.

    The shared goal:


    Equally high-quality standards in all ASM Product Line Innovation Centers!

    • Process and quality standards as well as automation and digitalization programs are developed by a global team.
    • Identical process standards ensure flexible capacity reserves.
    • Constant focus on the integration of suppliers.

    ASM SMT Solutions is a repeat winner:

    • After 2012 and 2016, this is the third time ASM has won the Factory of the Year award.
    • ASM’s SCM team is constantly working to advance its production facilities and process standards within the network.
