Fire erupts at ASML’s Berlin factory

ASML Holding NV has announced that there has been a fire at a factory it owns in Berlin, Germany.

ASML added that no one was injured and that it is too early to assess the impact on its operations.

The factory, the former Berliner Glas, makes components for ASML’s lithography systems, large machines which are used to create the circuitry of computer chips.

ASML acquired Berliner Glas, one of its former suppliers, in 2020 for an undisclosed sum.

The company had sales of 230 million euros ($261 million).

Reuters reports that shares, which had been trading about 1% higher until the news was announced, were down about 0.3% at 704.4 euros at 1349 GMT.
