ASM Expands Headquarters in Guadalajara


Guadalajara, Mexico — To better serve and support its customers in Mexico, ASM Assembly Systems has improved and expanded its facilities in Guadalajara. “As the market leader in Mexico, ASM has for many years had a significant presence in Mexico and a large number of direct staff, including field service engi-


neers, sales engineers, applications engineers, 24/7 Spanish language technical support personnel, and training staff,” says Carlos Taka- hashi, country manager for ASM. “With our expanded product and service offering, we simply needed more space, so we doubled the size of our facility.”


The expansion has been de- signed as a self-contained customer experience area. It includes a demo room, where SIPLACE placement machines and DEK printers can be demonstrated for customers, as well as a comprehensive set of line soft- ware and productivity improvement tools from ASM. The state-of-the-art facility can be connected directly to ASM’s center of competence in At- lanta, Georgia, through a high-reso- lution TV to further demonstrate the company’s leading-edge capabilities.
