Fastmicro Joined Netherlands-Flanders Economic Mission
Fastmicro B.V.

Last week, our U.S. colleague, Hans Arts, joined forces with 50 Dutch and Flemish semiconductor firms and knowledge institutes on the Netherlands-Flanders Economic Mission to Phoenix (Silicon Desert) and San Francisco (Silicon Valley). It was a week filled with inspiration, strengthened collaborations, and new connections with U.S. companies and institutes.

The semiconductor industry is experiencing exciting times. According to Gartner, global semiconductor revenue is projected to surge by 16.8% in 2024, reaching a total of $624 billion. As chips become strategically more important than ever, close collaboration between industry leaders is vital to shaping tomorrow’s world and driving innovation in the semiconductor industry.

Fastmicro is at the forefront of this change. Our metrology technology plays a pivotal role in combating rising manufacturing costs and the industry’s increasing carbon footprint. Our fast surface particle inspection solutions enable more frequent and earlier inspections in the production line and total value chain. This approach enhances yield, reduces costs, and minimizes waste.

We extend our gratitude to the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, Mark Rutte, Jan Jambon, and Micky Adriaansens for spearheading this mission. A heartfelt thanks to all the participating companies and institutions for making this week truly remarkable!
