OEM Product Suite fuels growth in PEER Group OEM business

PEER Group has established a dedicated and focused OEM sales and engineering team in its European headquarters in Dresden to support growth in its OEM business. "The success of our OEM Product Suite is fueling growth in our OEM business globally," says Bill Schmalz, director of PEER Group’s OEM business. PEER Group’s European headquarters is already home to more than 25 engineers who support a well-established base of semiconductor, solar, MEMS and other high technology factories. "Most of GmbH’s business is focused on helping fabs plan, test, install and integrate automated equipment with manufacturing systems," says Michael Arnold, managing director of PEER Group GmbH in Dresden. "Knowing how equipment is used in production helps us deploy PEER Group products that enable OEMs to quickly develop automation solutions that pass customer acceptance testing at initial installation."

PEER Group's new OEM team is well-versed in the SEMI and other high technology automation standards, allowing equipment suppliers to concentrate on their value-added technology development. "In addition to standards, we know the automation requirements of most of the world's semiconductor factories," explains Schmalz. "We use this experience to help OEMs plan and implement their automation designs in order to ensure high quality automation software solutions."
