10 Jan 2022 Outlook: Another year navigating through COVID-19 in a high demanding semiconductor market
2021 was a record year for Trymax Semiconductor Equipment B.V., an all-time high. Despite the problems we encountered due to the pandemic, the order intake has exceeded expectations.
Trymax did benefit from this changing and increasing demand and we’ve seen a strong increase in IC-Analog (RF filters & 5G) and discrete (power electronics) devices. To be able to cope with the increasing systems demand, Trymax has moved in December 2021 to a new location with more than double production area.
The 2022 outlook for Trymax is promising. The orderbook for H1/22 is running full and new orders for H2/22 are under discussion. In 2021, we faced multiple pandemic waves, a cyber-attack at suppliers and components shortage. But the Trymax logistic, manufacturing, planning and customer support team did a great job by thinking out of the box and using their creativity to solve the issues.
Sales and business development travel will remain low for the time being, customer support will continue wherever possible and we will do our best to comply with local rules, procedures or even quarantine for 2 weeks, although this isn’t easy.
I’m convinced that 2022 will be another year in which we have to demonstrate our ability to adapt to situations as they appear, but this is also demonstrating the strength of our organization.
