  • In addition, its key customer in Europe with a 1.5-2.0 year lead time for its lithography machines is also trying to move some production to Malaysia which we believe will likely benefit Frencken as it is already assisting the customer shift of some production to Malaysia. We believe Frencken will likely win more market share from its European competitors.
