Facilities. 14 main manufacturing sites.
Manufacturing. 2/3 of ST staff.
R&D. 9,000+ engineers.
Our network of
manufacturing facilities provides robust and flexible supply.
We believe in the benefits of owning manufacturing facilities and operating them in close proximity with our R&D activities. We have 14 main manufacturing sites in 9 countries in Europe and Asia. Seven are wafer fabrication facilities (front-end) and seven are assembly and test facilities (back-end).
Highly-digitalized and automated, our fabs and assembly & test facilities use the latest in Industry 4.0 innovation, ensuring the best manufacturing quality and productivity.
Our highly automated fabs run 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Transportation of material inside the facilities is managed by automated handling systems.
Most of the process starts and dispatching decisions are performed automatically.
Autonomous intelligent vehicles operate safely alongside people in the factories.
Mixed reality headsets are used for remote maintenance in our facilities.
Data is central to our manufacturing processes. We are actively engaged in digital transformation, leveraging technology advancements to improve resource utilization, increase yield, and reduce costs.
Re-engineering our supply chain with an adaptive demand-driven model to better meet our customer needs.
Connecting product-related information and processes for a more efficient and effective innovation engine.
Industrializing our manufacturing data & analytics capabilities to optimize productivity and quality.
100% renewable energy by 2027.
42% water recycling rate in 2022.
95% of waste reused or recycled in 2022.
ST has been working on minimizing the impact of its operations on the environment for nearly 30 years. Programs are in place in all our manufacturing sites to reduce energy usage and direct and indirect emissions, optimize our water management, reduce waste, and promote a circular economy.
