ASML CSCM - Team Manager Upgrades & Installs in Veldhoven, Netherlands


Machine upgrades are becoming increasingly important to ASML with significant growth expected in the years to come. To optimize turnaround time and costs ASML performs most of these upgrades at the site of the client. This means that thousands of parts and tools need to be planned, shipped and delivered at the customer site on the right moment, at the right quality.

ASML's Customer Supply Chain organization is building a new team to deliver this ambition, in which upgrade, install and relocation (UIR) (junior) coordinators will play a critical role. Over the past 3 years, this team has grown from a handful of individuals to a team of over 40 people in 5 different locations. For our Veldhoven office we are looking for an experienced manager who can lead, develop, and coach a group of coordinators to ensure all supply chain requirements of our field factory organization are met.
