The VDL Group is an international industrial company focused on the development, production and sale of semi-finished products, buses and coaches and other finished products. It is a conglomerate of flexible, independent companies, each with its own specialty. The strength of the VDL Group lies in the mutual co-operation between the companies.

The NXT Wafer Stage module is part of the ASML TWINSCAN NXT platform, the assembled, a machine for the 'Integrated Circuit (IC) market for computer chip manufacturers such as Samsung, Intel and many others. The introduction of the relationship between VDL ETG and ASML is one of the main reasons VDL ETG wants a cycle time reduction. ASML is a major customer, which in the summer of 2010, experienced an increase in demand for its TWINSCAN NXT platform thus logically also increased the demand of the NXT Wafer Stage module assembled by VDL ETG.
