Semiconductor firm ramps up investment

TO better serve local customers and support the company’s business development, ams, a world-leading supplier of high-performance sensor solutions, relocated its offices to Shenzhen’s Overseas Chinese Town (OCT) last week, succeeding its launch of a turnkey solution for industrial and commercial ultrasonic flow meters in cooperation with design house Shenzhen Odithc Electronics Co. in December last year.

“We are increasing our investment in China, including the office move this time. We have also hired many new employees countrywide and strengthened our R&D capabilities in China, in a bid to better approach our Chinese customers,” said Alexander Everke, CEO of ams.

According to Everke, in the past 15 months alone, the company has acquired seven other companies. From 2016 to 2019, ams expects to realize a compound annual growth rate of 60 percent, a goal that it is on track to be realized based on their success over the past few years.

Last year ams witnessed a 93-percent growth year on year in revenue when calculated in euros, which translates to a 100-percent growth if calculated in U.S. dollars. Of the growth factors, 69 percent was contributed by the consumer and communications sectors and the rest by the automotive, industrial and medical sectors.

“It’s safe to say that we are the semiconductor company with the highest revenue growth in the world. Moreover, we also play a leading role in four core applications including optical, imaging, environmental and audio sensing,” said Everke.

“Our government encourages the innovation of traditional industries, including the innovation of new technologies and new applications. So our focus on the automotive industry resonates with the direction of the country. That’s also why we focus on investing in the automotive industry in China,” said Chen Pinglu, vice president of sales and marketing at ams’ China division.
