    Mrs. Carrie Lam, The Chief Executive of The HKSAR, together with Ms. Orasa Livasiri, Chairman of the Board, ASMPT, and Mr. Lee Wai Kwong, Chief Executive Officer of ASMPT, host the opening ceremony.

    Hong Kong, 6 May 2019 – ASM Pacific Technology Limited (“ASMPT” or “the Group”), (Stock code: 0522), a global technology and market leader, which develops and provides leading-edge solutions in surface mount technology, equipment and materials for the semiconductor assembly and packaging industries, today celebrated the grand opening of its new Hong Kong office at Gateway ts in Tsing Yi. The opening ceremony was officiated by The Honourable Mrs. Carrie LAM CHENG Yuet-ngor, The Chief Executive of the HKSAR; together with Ms. Orasa Livasiri, Chairman of the Board, ASMPT, and Mr. Lee Wai Kwong, Chief Executive Officer of ASMPT.

    With guests including government officials, academicians and business leaders in Hong Kong as well as the international business community, the opening of the new office marked a milestone for ASMPT. The move to Tsing Yi is a giant change for ASMPT, after almost four decades at its old office in Kwai Chung.

    Occupying more than 300,000 sq. ft., the new facility houses ASMPT’s Hong Kong R&D (Research & Development) Centre. With about 30% of ASMPT’s total R&D headcount, the R&D centre in Hong Kong is the largest of ASMPT’s ten R&D centres around the globe. Almost 50% of the over 1,300 employees in Hong Kong work in R&D.

    At the ceremony, Mrs. Carrie Lam said, “Innovation and technology (I&T) is a sector dear to my heart and is among the key policy priorities of the current term of Government. And central to building an I&T hub here in Hong Kong is a thriving R&D industry. I am therefore glad that ASM Pacific Technology opens its new R&D centre here today. I look forward to working with the company and other industry players in promoting I&T development in Hong Kong.”

    Mr. Lee Wai Kwong added: “ASMPT was founded in Hong Kong back in 1975, so our origin and heritage are deeply rooted in Hong Kong. Today, we have grown to become the world’s No.1 provider of semiconductor assembly and packaging equipment, and surface mount technology (SMT) solutions.”

    Mr Lee further explained: “This new Gateway facility, which includes an Innovation Centre, is a culmination of many years of the Group’s efforts in technology development and R&D. We have about 1,300 staff, of which over 50% are R&D staff. These efforts are in line with the aspirations of the Hong Kong government for the city to excel in innovation and technology and, ultimately, to diversify the economy and offer quality career opportunities for our people.”
