Chip machine maker ASML wants to realize its strategic expansion, which will involve 20,000 jobs, in Eindhoven. With this crucial choice, the company will ensure enormous growth in the city and the region in the next ten years.

Financial CEO Roger Dassen of ASML has signed a letter of intent with the municipality of Eindhoven. The expansion of ASML is planned in the outskirts of Eindhoven, on newly constructed industrial estates around the airport. The Brainport Industries Campus (BIC) will have a branch that is roughly the same size as the current ASML campus on De Run in Veldhoven. In addition to the 20,000 additional jobs at ASML, the move is expected to create around 45,000 jobs at suppliers and indirect jobs outside of it.
