Hero image for Nikon Precision Europe

Established in 1917, Nikon Corporation is one of the world’s leading optical companies. With decades of experience as a manufacturer of optical lenses and precision equipment, Nikon developed the world’s first production-worthy step-and-repeat photolithography tool in 1980. Since then, over 60 models of Nikon Semiconductor Lithography systems (NSR’s) have printed half of all the integrated circuits ever manufactured.

Today, Nikon is the leading global supplier of Semiconductor lithography systems. It is real world, on-product performance that is vital to chipmakers. The latest Nikon Lithography system NSR-S635E is the industry’s most advanced for aggressive multiple patterning processes. It ensures world-class device patterning and optimum fab productivity to fully satisfy real-world 5 nm node requirements.

Nikon Precision Europe (NPE) GmbH is the organisation supporting Nikon’s Lithography systems for its European customers. It provides service to customers during the lifecycle of the Lithography system. Whether it is during installation, wafer production ramp-up or in a sustaining production environment, their team provide expert analysis and solutions to enable optimal usage around the clock of the capital equipment in the customer factory.

NPE has been in Ireland since the early 1990’s with local staff supporting a number of multinational customers. Having started with a handful of local employees it has steadily grown in line with its customer’s needs. It now has close to 140 employees, and this expansion will continue over the coming months with an additional 40 positions available across a range of skills.
