The event drew participation from Kulicke & Soffa’s global supply base with over 30 key suppliers represented. The event was hosted by Joyce Lim, Kulicke & Soffa’s Vice President of Global Supply Chain and Customer Operations, and members of the executive leadership team.

K&S presented Suppliers’ Day Awards to the following suppliers for their outstanding contributions to new product development:

Congratulations to these suppliers for receiving the K&S Supplier Award.
