EVG breaks ground on expansion and seeks 100 new staff

EV Group (EVG), a supplier of wafer bonding and lithography equipment for the MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical system), nanotechnology and semiconductor markets, says that earlier this month it broke ground on an expansion of its manufacturing capacity at its headquarters in St Florian, Austria. The firm says that the expansion is the latest example of its steady growth since its foundation more than 30 years ago.

In addition, EVG has seen a 40% increase in order intake in fiscal 2011 compared with fiscal 2010, and it is currently aiming to recruit about 100 additional employees. “This strong growth validates the need for this manufacturing floor expansion,” says Dr Werner Thallner, executive operations and financial director.

The new building, directly adjacent to the existing manufacturing facility, will more than double production floor space and is due to be completed by the end of this year. 

In parallel, EVG continues to invest in additional capacity for its machining center and new manufacturing technologies, as well as planning to further modernize the existing manufacturing facility. One upgrade includes the installation of several filter fan units, bringing a virtually particle-free environment to EVG’s entire equipment production. In addition, the entire manufacturing area will be fully air-conditioned and additional hydraulic ramps and a large overhead crane will be installed to provide a better working environment for staff.

Customers will also have access to a new area dedicated for visitors, which houses two glass domes that provide a complete view into the manufacturing area and a sophisticated entry control system. Additional test rooms will facilitate customer-specific process development and customization, including a smooth source inspection process even at times of increased orders.

To support its future growth, EVG aims to recruit about 100 new staff, mainly in manufacturing and technical service and support. The firm’s newly launched recruitment campaign is geared to attract educated professionals with a passion for technology.
