Siplace: DEK purchase completed

ASM Pacific Technology (ASMPT) has completed its purchase of printing technology specialist DEK on July 2.
As the Printing Solutions Division (DEK) and the Placement Solutions Division (SIPLACE), the two divisions will form the SMT Solutions Segment within the ASMPT group.

All of the printer specialist’s production and sales locations, management and staff are acquired in their entirety. Michael Brianda will spearhead the newly-established Printing Solutions Division. Günter Schindler of SIPLACE will lead the Placement Solutions Division and both divisions will fall within ASMPT’s SMT Solutions Segment, headed by CEO Günter Lauber.

"Just as it did with the purchase of SIPLACE, ASMPT aims to add innovative strength and growth with its acquisition of DEK," comments Lauber and explains the take-over reason: "This effectively establishes ASMPT as the first manufacturer to offer solutions for every phase of electronics production from wafer to final assembly."
