ASML manages its China business from its Shanghai office. Despite the Omicron pandemic lockdown in Shanghai over the last two months, ASML managed to maintain stable operations and meet the customer needs.
Shanghai's website media The Paper reported on July 6 that all ASML projects in China are progressing as scheduled.
Some ASML engineers volunteered to work at clients' plants to ensure the operation of the machine and the continuous production during the Covid-19 lockdown period.
