The origin of Lasertec Corporation dates back to 1960 when Yasushi Uchiyama founded a small firm to develop X-ray television systems. For 50 years since its inception, Lasertec has grown steadily, bringing a number of innovative inspection and measurement systems to market, guided by the corporate philosophy, “Create unique solutions. Create new value.”
Our technologies and products play an important role in enhancing productivity and reliability of semiconductors and flat panel displays. Thanks to high quality and affordable consumer electronics, people enjoy better living today than yesterday. It is our humble hope that we make a small share of contribution to furthering this trend.
“Let's launch a product every year that is totally new to the world.” This engineer spirit has been held dear since our founding days. Our day-to-day effort based on this spirit has borne fruits in such unique products as semiconductor mask blanks inspection systems and large-size photomask inspection systems for LCDs, both of which are industry-standard products today.
We are now taking a fresh step toward achieving our vision of the current medium term: “Be the first point of contact for our worldwide customers searching for solutions.” We appreciate our customers' high expectations for our capability, especially for our core technology and product development in the area of state-of-the-art inspection systems for semiconductor and FPD industry applications.
Our mission is to be the front runner of the optical technology field and help customers overcome new challenges arising from continuing innovations. It is our resolve that we keep growing through creation of unique solutions and new value for our customers while maintaining high profitability and reinforcing financial strength in the process, so that we can contribute more to global prosperity.
