ROBUST was established on January 8, 2004 in Hukou Township, Hsinchu County. In its early years, the company took the repair and maintenance of Novellus CMP and the supply of parts as its major business. In 2005, ROBUST allied itself with Novellus, a major manufacturer of semiconductor equipment in the US, and became the designated provider of repair, maintenance, and technical service of robots in the Greater China Region for Novellus. Thence, ROBUST repositioned itself as a professional provider of repair, maintenance and other services of automatic robots. ROBUST became the designated strategic partner of United Microelectronics Corporation(UMC), a major semiconductor manufacturer in Taiwan, in 2006 for providing UMC with repair and maintenance services of automatic robots.
The company was accredited with ISO 9001:2000 in 2007 as a result of its efforts to provide even better product quality and realize even better quality control. Its product quality and service have received even more positive acknowledgement from the industry circle since then. In 2008, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited(TSMC) selected ROBUST as its strategic partner for repair service of automatic robots. With its outstanding product quality and technical service, ROBUST not only has changed the dependence of semiconductor companies on equipment manufacturers for technical support but has formed solid partnership with its customers as well.
ROBUST merged HNY Technology(formerly SIC Electronics/BESTAR Robot team ) in April 2010 and as a result its service team became even more comprehensive. In July 2010, ROBUST established its Singapore Branch to exploit the Singapore market. ROBUST will aggressively take an internationalization strategy and will provide the “Two-Trillion” Industries of Taiwan (TFT/LCD/IC) with solutions featuring more comprehensive service and better quality at reasonable cost and in a timely manner to help customers to achieve success.
Holding fast to the quality policy of Quality First and Customer Foremost, ROBUST aims to solve its customers’ problems in the field of robots and equipment in order to help them achieve success and to their sustainable business objectives. ROBUST will abide by its business philosophy of “Professional , Honest, Pragmatic, Innovative” and develop more aggressively its own products in order to achieve sustainable operation and development. It is ROBUST’s hope that its efforts may help the “Two-Trillion” Industries of Taiwan to improve quality and cut costs to become more competitive in the international market.
