Company Expands Regional Operation in Tech Hub, Suzhou;                                                                            Invests in New Facility; Hosts Open House

SUZHOU, China, August 25, 2016 -- FormFactor, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORM) today marked an important corporate milestone: Ten years in China enabling local semiconductor manufacturers with essential wafer test technologies. To celebrate the occasion, company executives hosted an open house at FormFactor’s new facility in Suzhou, near Shanghai. CEO Mike Slessor and FormFactor’s China General Manager, Limin Yan welcomed local officials to the event, as well as customers, suppliers and employees.   

The celebration marks a new high point for FormFactor. Since 1993, the company has provided an extensive portfolio of high-performance probe card technologies and expertise to the global semiconductor industry. The cards are used to test integrated circuits (ICs) that power nearly every smart phone on the planet, as well as electronic systems used in computing, consumer and automotive applications. Over the years as IC complexity soared, FormFactor continually innovated to equip manufacturers with customized solutions to test their Foundry & Logic, DRAM, and Flash devices. The company employs approximately 1500 people globally.

Today, FormFactor is the world’s top supplier of probe cards (by revenue), according to an annual survey produced by US market research firm, VLSIresearch. FormFactor also ranked 1st as the BEST supplier of subsystems for customer satisfaction according to a separate survey from the same research firm.

FormFactor CEO Mike Slessor acknowledged China’s growing market, and thanked customers, suppliers, employees, and others for supporting FormFactor’s growth in the region. Speaking at the Open House event, he said, “China’s semiconductor industry is evolving fast, and presenting exciting opportunities for FormFactor. For ten years, we have shared valued collaborations with Chinese customers, beginning at the earliest design phase, and extending through final test where FormFactor technologies are deployed. Boosting our presence in China means we can partner more deeply and with a greater number of customers to help enrich their IC innovation. We’re very pleased to be doing that from our new facility in Suzhou.”

A Decade of Dedication to Customers in China

FormFactor’s operations in Suzhou’s high-tech hub began in 2006. The company, then known as MicroProbe, was a subsidiary of a US probe card company by the same name. When FormFactor acquired MicroProbe in 2012, the Suzhou operation became FormFactor China.

Now, to support its steadily-growing customer base in the region, the company has moved to a larger facility, also in Suzhou. The new 1410 sq. meter (15,170 sq. ft.) site houses FormFactor’s dedicated sales and support team for China, as well as technical experts that work closely with China-based customers to develop optimum test solutions for their unique IC designs. The company employs more than 80 people at this location.

FormFactor’s China General Manager, Limin Yan, said: “FormFactor has a long tradition of working closely with customers to increase test yields and ensure faster time-to-test, while also reducing overall test costs. We will continue to follow the same collaborative approach, and are committed to investing in local R&D to produce high-quality test solutions and enable test success for our customers in China.”
