I started my apprenticeship at Evatec as a Mechanical Engineer back in 2017. It was a great way for me to begin my career and learn about the different platforms our company manufactures. Since 2021 I have been part of the CLUSTERLINE® 200 Engineering Team. We keep the machines up to date with design modifications and new components. I really like the variety in my job as well as the possibility to work in a great team. In my free time I love to produce music as a DJ. Perhaps we might meet when I’m performing at a local club or festival.
I am a Retrofit Manager within our customer service team responsible for upgrades and retrofits of the installed base. Daily tasks range from preparing specifications and quotations to project managing the manufacturing of retrofit kits then supporting our Sales & Service Organizations until the project is completed to our customer's satisfaction. Having completed my studies in systems engineering and worked as an Engineering Manager for 15 years I started at Evatec in 2021. I am a huge football fan and an active football referee but after a long working day I also enjoy poker - it’s a great game of skill and I love the challenge of beating my opponents.
I started working at Evatec in 2017 as a Project Leader within the Advanced Packaging Business Unit. Using my previous work experience helps me in my job making sure we deliver tools to customers on time and according to the demanding quality standards we set for ourselves.
The challenges of working in an international environment ensuring clear communication with everybody around the world to ensure projects run smoothly and on time is something which I really enjoy. Normally I’m busy travelling all over the world for work, but whilst that’s not possible right now, I do at least have more time to create new DIY videos for my Youtube channel which is a hobby when I am not working.
I am a materials scientist and part of the process team in our Advanced Packaging Business Unit. Our customers are always looking to the future so my main tasks are the development of new etch and deposition processes for continuous improvement of our production systems and components. It’s very satisfying to see what I have developed implemented at customers around the globe. Outside of Evatec I do voluntary work helping foreign nationals integrate when they arrive in my local community but then I enjoy relaxing with all the outdoor possibilities that the Rhine valley has to offer.
After an apprenticeship as an Automation Engineer, I gained a Bachelor’s Degree Science in Systems Engineering specializing in Computer Science. At the start of my career path in Evatec I worked in software engineering but now I’m a project leader in the Advanced Packaging business unit. An important aspect of my job is monitoring schedules and taking actions to ensure we deliver on time to our customers. We have to be flexible and act fast to support customers even when their requirements change during a project. In my downtime I like to spend time outdoors in nature and go skiing or hiking.
I am a Project Leader based at our headquarters in Switzerland. It’s a demanding role where I need to use all my people skills organizing and motivating people across many departments – from Product Lines, Supply Chain, Business Units and R&D to other external development partners. It's my job to ensure projects are completed on time and in budget. Our technology changes fast and sometimes that means last minute changes in our projects too so we all need to be flexible in our thinking. When not at work, I really love my exercise but even more than that I love to cook good food for family and friends.
Manager Back Office
After lots of new job challenges since first joining the company as an "administrative assistant" I’m now celebrating my 25th anniversary at Evatec as BackOffice Manager. Our work in the BackOffice is hugely varied including responsibility for supporting our executive management, travel and expenses of the employees, and organization of various events. I love working with people so this is the perfect job for me and it's people who inspire me in my private life too. I've been involved in local theatre for many years and love spending my free time with family and friends.
As Human Resources Manager I manage activities like selection and recruitment of new employees. On a daily basis my job is also to support evaluation and development of our people to be ready for the future. I studied Business Administration and I am currently in the final stages of my master studies in Human Capital Management. Since I started working for Evatec, no day has been the same. The variety of topics is huge and I really like the culture. I might be new in this industry but as a matter of fact that makes my job even more interesting.
It was a great honour to be recruited as the second employee when Evatec first established its own Sales and Service Organization in China in 2017. I graduated from Shandong University majoring in Finance, and after a couple of other roles before joining Evatec I am now in charge of our office team. We are responsible for order processing, logistics, finance, HR, events and administration. I really admire the team work spirit and generally believe in the philosophy “ trust your buddies- if you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together.” When I am not working i like to relax with a book and a cup of tea. If you add a cake, it’s a fantastic weekend.
After a physics degree at the University of Freiburg I completed my PhD thesis at ETH. Today I am in charge of our Evatec Competence Lab (ECL), a great new cleanroom facility of more than 2500 m2 where we help our customers fast-track their new process development. It was great to be given responsibility for the whole project from the beginning - everything from building up the laboratory with all the machines, the team to run it, the measurement equipment we needed and even the new software platform to track all our samples. When not working I love outdoor sports and smashing the ball on the squash court with other friends from Evatec.
I have been working in this industry for almost 25 years - with Balzers, BPS, Unaxis, Oerlikon and now Evatec. After completing my apprenticeship as a truck mechanic, I worked in various industries including transport, mechanical and metal construction before joining Balzers in 1995. I then started there as a mechanic, gaining several promotions to become group and team leader. I joined Evatec in 2015, and I am now Head of Assembly. My main tasks are to lead the assembly teams and ensure that all our systems are manufactured and tested to be ready on time for our customers.
I am a senior scientist with our multidisciplinary Solutions Design team working across all Evatec business units. We aim to give our customers the lead through continuous development of better manufacturing hardware and processes for their new device developments. In joining Evatec in 2010 I switched sides from using thin film deposition tools to manufacturing them and the day to day user perspective I brought with me certainly helps me in my job today. My work takes me on visits to customers, research partners and conferences around the world as I present our technology developments and learn from other experts in our field. Then when I’m home again there’s nothing I enjoy more than being outside in the swiss countryside with my family.
I am a Mechanical Engineer for our CLUSTERLINE® 200. Before joining Evatec in 2020 I studied engineering and spent three months in the USA improving my English skills. As part of the PEALD/PECVD team I manly work on the development of our PEALD system. Developing and building a brand new module is exciting. We really have the freedom to think creatively about the best approach, gather knowledge and feed it back into development process until we have the best result for our customers. This kind of challenge is exactly what I like most about my job, but outside of my job I enjoy sports challenges too. Competing in local multidisciple athletics events I want to improve my personal best in long jump to achieve 7 metres.
Human Resources Manager
I am one of the HR Managers at Evatec. Delivering the best products and services to customers demands the best people, so it’s crucial for our company to hire them, get them off to a flying start in their work and invest in developing their skills with long term training and development. Right now our company is growing fast so my main focus is recruitment of new employees for our headquarters in Truebbach and I am very proud that I can make a difference here. A typical day in the office for me involves checking CV’s, organizing interviews or trial work days, and finalizing work contracts. I really like the variety in our business and our company. Every day involves working with different people from different countries having many diverse cultural backgrounds.
Process System Specialist
After a short internship where I came in contact with vacuum systems for the first time I decided to make my bachelor degree in system engineering with special focus on mechanical engineering. I joined the company in 2017 after completing my studies and these days I am a Process System Specialist in our Evatec Competence Laboratory (ECL) where we help customers develop the next generation of thin film processes. Typically, my job involves preparing our sputter tools for samplings by changing targets, magnet systems and any other hardware required. If something on our lab tools does not work as it should, it’s my job to find the cause and fix it quickly. Our laboratory has to help many customers around the globe, so we really need to avoid unexpected tool down situations. I love being part of a team working on developments for the future by taking care of our lab tools and making sure they are always ready on time for customer sampling work.
After training as an electrician I worked as a systems technician for several years before graduating from the technical college. I joined Evatec in 2016 and am now working in systems engineering at our headquarters in Switzerland. I develop and test hardware and software solutions on and around our systems. However, my work doesn’t end once the tool is delivered to our customer. Continuous improvement is part of our company culture, so I am always working behind the scenes on continuous adjustments and developments that customers request to enhance performance or introduce new capabilities they need in the future.
I grew up in Japan but I have been living and working in Switzerland for over 30 years now. As a Controller at Evatec headquarters I work with all our financial teams around the globe. My main tasks are preparing financial reports for the Board of Directors and the management team. It probably goes without saying but I really like facts and figures. Accuracy is all important in many aspects of my work and our customers expect nothing less. I really enjoy it when everything adds up correctly. I get lots of job satisfaction too when the data, reports and forecasts I provide keep our management informed and help them make decisions and take any actions they need. Working in this industry for over 25 years probably tells you a lot about how much I like it.
Technical Marketing Manager, Evatec China
I joined Evatec in 2022 but already knew Evatec technologies because of my previous experience as a PVD application manager. I studied Material Science and Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and then engaged in PVD related technical work for more than 10 years. Today I’m a Technical Marketing Manager in Evatec China (ECN). As a part of our sales force, my responsibility includes providing technical support to sales project and marketing promotions. In a typical week I spend 3 to 4 days on the road visiting customers and 1 or 2 days at our Shanghai office. I love the challenging work at Evatec. Every day I learn new things about the exciting technologies that we deliver to customers. When I am not working I enjoy my time with friends over an afternoon tea or visit the gym to keep fit.
Regional Head of Customer Service, Evatec SEA
After studying mechanical engineering at the University of Malaya and 16 years of work experience, I joined Evatec in 2016 where I am now the Head of Customer Service for the Southeast Asia (SEA) and Japan regions. Our team takes care of the equipment installation, FAT & troubleshooting at the customer’s site. We also support spare parts and retrofit sales activities. I regularly travel in the SEA region and Japan for customer visits as well as service team meetings. From time to time, I will meet my colleagues in our head quarter at Switzerland. I love the variety of challenges and the work flexibility at Evatec. Outside of work I am a basketball coach for primary school students, and I like to spend time hiking with friends.
Sales Manager, Evatec China
I’m a sales Manager at Evatec China (ECN) and we are responsible for the market development and sales of Evatec products to the advanced packaging and semiconductor field. I studied marketing at university, then worked as a sales manager in the Solar and Semiconductor field for 6 years before joining Evatec at the end of 2017. As a front-line sales person, I often face urgent or special needs from customers that we have to solve in close cooperation with our headquarters. Besides work I like to play basketball, go cycling and running in my free time.
Technical Marketing Manager, Evatec Taiwan
I joined Evatec Taiwan as an Application Engineer in 2017. Back then I had been working with production tools and supporting customers. However, since then I had the opportunity to develop within the company and today, I work as a Technical Marketing Manager. In this position I have the opportunity to work closer with all the departments and customers on system applications and improvements as well as understanding and identifying the underlying business opportunities. I love exchanging ideas among the team and provide solutions to our customers. In my spare time, I am a big football fan so I watch football games whenever I can, and I also enjoy playing badminton.
Customer Sales Manager, Evatec SEA
I joined Evatec in 2017 as a Customer Service Sales Manager and I am responsible for spare parts, service and retrofits in the South East Asia (SEA) region. I usually travel a lot in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam which is great because I love to travel and be in daily contact with clients. If I am not on the road, I am working in the office in Penang, Malaysia which is a beautiful island and offers a lot of nature where I can relax after a busy day at work while jogging or hiking.
Sales Manager, Evatec Japan
I joined Evatec in May 2023 starting with an intensive two-month training course at our headquarters in Switzerland where I learnt about Evatec and their products. I originally studied physics at university, where my research focused on the properties of thin films in solar panels. After that, I worked as a sales engineer in vacuum technology for about 12 years. As a Sales Manager within Evatec Japan, my job is to help explain the benefits of our technology to our customers. Since my first day at the company I could feel the passion in our people for their work making it a thrilling experience. I am excited for what the future will bring.
Manager Customer Service, Evatec Taiwan
I studied automation engineering at university and worked as an equipment engineer for several years before joining Evatec in 2017 where I am now the Head of Customer Service for our Taiwan Branch. I lead our service team and we provide on-site service and process developments to our Taiwan customers. Typically, I spend 2 or 3 days per week for customer visits. Customer Satisfaction is one of our main goals, but we also have to meet the interests of the company, so one of my biggest challenges is to constantly communicate with all stakeholders and find compromises. To relax outside of work, I like to go camping with my family and friends.

Sales Manager, Evatec North America
I have spent my entire career in sales and marketing of vacuum components and systems since I graduated from university. I joined Evatec as the Sales Manager for Photonics in North America in 2021. I manage our existing customers in the USA and focus on new business development. Hybrid working is great, whether it is time spent face to face time with colleagues in the Clearwater Florida office, working from my home or travelling on business. I love the interaction with customers. I particularly appreciate that I can bring in my own ideas and initiatives in my role helping them find the best production solutions for their different applications together with the rest of the Evatec team. Next to work I really like going on long bicycle rides with my friends or spend the time with my family.
