Brewer Science celebrates 20-year anniversary of establishing Asia location
Brewer Science (Rolla Missouri), a global leader in developing and manufacturing next-generation materials and processes for the microelectronics and optoelectronics industries, commemorates the 20th anniversary of establishing its first Asia location, now one of five Brewer Science offices in the region.
Brewer Science opened the doors to its first Asia location in Kowloon, Hong Kong, on 28 November 2001. Since then, the company’s presence in the region has grown substantially. Now with five locations, Brewer Science currently has offices in Shanghai, China; Seoul, Korea; Tokyo, Japan, and the Asia Applications & Innovations Center in Taipei, Taiwan.
Brewer Science commemorated this milestone anniversary with a tree planting event at Badouzi Chaojing Park in Keelung City, Taiwan. A total of 300 sea lettuce trees were planted by 11 employees, who are excited to see that the trees will serve as a home for plants and wildlife to grow in this area. Sustainability is one of the core values Brewer Science promotes both internally and in the communities it serves.
Brewer Science had partners in Asia prior to establishing the local locations and recognised that a physical presence in the region would play a vital role in the growth and development of the printed electronics and semiconductor market. This fortifies the unique approach the company takes to business development, by providing customised solutions specific to the customers’ needs, to enable strong relationships with customers and suppliers.
“Our customers’ long-term success is important to us, and we pride ourselves on exceeding their expectations with our personalised care and commitment,” stated Dr Terry Brewer, founder and president of Brewer Science. “Having a dedicated local team, who effectively connect with customers and suppliers in the region, has allowed us to provide our innovative services and cutting-edge products to a market that spans the globe. Our worldwide reach will only continue to grow, and it’s remarkable to see the company expand internationally.”
Brewer Science has five locations in Asia, a part of the total ten international locations including offices across Europe and North America. Dr Terry Brewer founded Brewer Science in 1981 starting with headquarters in Rolla, Missouri, USA, when the company boldly introduced ARC bottom antireflective coatings to chipmakers worldwide, shifting the microelectronics industry as we know it.
This year marks not only the 20th year of Brewer Science’s Asia presence, but also the milestone 40th anniversary of the company’s initial founding in 1981. Brewer Science is encouraging all of its locations and communities to recount the company’s “40 Years of Innovation” – exploring significant accomplishments the company made over the past four decades. The 40th-anniversary highlights include technological developments and bold achievements such as becoming the first company in the semiconductor industry to become a Certified B Corporation by achieving the highest standards of corporate, social, and environmental performance. Additionally, it recognises significant improvements to sustainability and inclusion being the only company in the semiconductor industry that is Green Circle Certified Zero Waste to Landfill, a sustained accolade the company has achieved for six years.
