A flurry of new members has taken the total company membership of the The Fab Owners Association (FOA) to 74, a 14% increase since the beginning of 2011. The new members are device-makers GLOBALFOUNDRIES and LFoundry GMBH. New associate members include Macquarie Electronics USA, M&W U.S., Inc, RED Equipment Pte Ltd., SigmaTech, Inc., Mattson Technology, Inc., ePAK, Rite Track and ASML.  

“Device manufacturers continue to be attracted by the opportunity to share common goals in an unbiased setting,” noted L.T. Guttadauro, executive director of the FOA. “Through collaboration and tools like our manufacturing benchmark studies, working groups and aggregate purchasing programs, members are better prepared to predict demand, product cycles and material requirements.  Associate members are attracted by the growing marketing opportunities presented through their membership.”

Member companies now include some based in Europe and Asia, with the original members coming primarily from the U.S. The FOA claims that its members have annual revenue of US$30 billion.

LFoundry was the most recent firm to become a member.
