Neways has completed the acquisition of the activities of Sencio. The Nijmegen-based chip packaging specialist went bankrupt at the beginning of December after its biggest customer, Hella, pulled the plug on their long-standing relationship. The company will continue operations as Neways Advanced Microsystems out of its current facilities on the Noviotech Campus, where it produces its technology in highly specialized cleanrooms.

“Over the past years, we’ve invested significantly in our technology position, allowing us to act as innovation partner for the most demanding customers in the industry. Through the acquisition of Sencio, we further strengthen our market position in microelectronics and are able to offer a broader suite of integrated services to both our and their customers,” comments Neways CEO Hans Büthker.

Oliver Maiwald, CEO of Sencio, adds: “I’m excited to become part of the Neways team and continue offering our technology with a large part of the dedicated and specialized Sencio team. Joining forces with Neways enables us to offer a complete suite of advanced microelectronics services to a broad set of customers that can benefit from advanced packaging for smart sensing and actuation applications.”
