Launch of the book The Architects of ASML (in dutch)

8 June 2017

On Thursday, June 8 2017, author Rene Raaymakers of Techwatch will celebrate the publication of his book on the history of ASML (in Dutch).



The launch party takes place at the Evoluon in Eindhoven (Netherlands).

Former workers of ASML have each prepared a short speech, in which they will reminisce about their adventures while working for ASML in its pioneering years.

Wim van der Leegte, former president of the VDL Group, will receive the first official copy of the book.


There are two versions of the book. De geldmachine – De turbulente jeugd van ASML (The Moneymachine – The Wild Youth of ASML) portraits how engineers and managers struggled and finally made a success of ASML. De architecten van ASML (The Architects of ASML) is a longer version of the same story, with lots of technical explanations, and photo's. Both books contain the same general information in Dutch.
