ROHM celebrates its 50th Anniversary in Europe: Focus on Power and Analog Solutions
Willich-Münchheide, Germany, August 26, 2021 – Since 1971, ROHM Semiconductor GmbH has established eight locations throughout Europe to support its customers with tailored semiconductor solutions – locally. The company highlights the milestones of its European activities with a special “50th Anniversary” website.

Founded in 1958 in Kyoto, Japan, the ROHM group today has become a global player and supplier in the electronics industry. The company produces a wide range of solutions including integrated circuits for power management, SiC MOSFETs, diodes and modules, silicon power transistors and diodes, but also LEDs, resistors and many more electronic components. Being a vertically integrated semiconductor manufacturer, ROHM is largely independent of suppliers and can respond more flexibly to market changes.

ROHM Semiconductor Europe, founded in 1971, with Headquarters in Willich near Düsseldorf, Germany, is represented by eight offices in six countries today: Germany, France, UK, Spain, Finland and Italy. Additionally, ROHM’s production facility SiCrystal, located in Nuremberg, Germany, supplies the global markets with silicon carbide wafers.

The company’s European business activities – in line with the ROHM group’s Medium-Term Management Plan ‘MOVING FORWARD to 2025’ – aim to accelerate social contribution. “We focus on power and analog solutions and contribute to our customers’ needs for energy saving and downsizing of their products,” states Wolfram Harnack, President at ROHM Semiconductor Europe.

ROHM’s European business both serves the needs of automotive and industrial application areas. “For example, car manufacturers strongly demand our silicon carbide devices for their production of electric cars. In addition, we also see exciting projects in the industrial field and expect a major growth in Europe – particularly in the area of infrastructure for e-mobility and alternative energies,” Harnack continues.

ROHM’s customer focus in Europe is reflected by the Power Lab, a modern laboratory for power electronics located at the company’s EU Headquarters in Willich. It provides important local technical support at application level to ROHM’s European customers. “With our (Application and Technical Solution Center (ATSC)) and Power Lab activities and expertise we enhance our local customer support to make their products even better – with state-of-the-art equipment and specialized measurements,” explains Aly Mashaly, Director of ROHM’s European Application and Technical Solution Center.

Additionally, ROHM's commitment to supporting its European OEM and Tier 1 partners is mirrored by various supplier awards and design-in projects.
