It is estimated that UK will leave the European Union. It is unclear at this time whether there will be a transition phase during which the UK will remain in the single European market. Without such an agreement, trade between the UK and the EU will be governed by the kind of WTO rules we know from other third countries regarding identity checks, customs processing and registration procedures.
The SMT Solutions Segment of ASMPT has made all necessary preparations:
- Our employees are well trained in conducting customs formalities for many different countries correctly and reliably.
- We have re-analyzed our logistics procedures, and our delivery processes for machines, parts and consumables are designed for global use.
- Above all: Our high global process standards were the reason why the ASM production network was recently named “Factory of the Year” again. After awards in 2012 and 2016, the panel of judges this time recognized especially the high level of common standards within ASM’s global production network with its plants in Munich, Weymouth, Singapore, and Malaysia. Thanks to our global standardization of processes, equipment and tools as well as our consistent focus on supplier development and integration, each of our factories is equipped to satisfy its regional markets as resource-effectively as possible while also serving as a capacity reserve for other plants and regions.
