April 5, 2017, Souderton, PA – ASM International visited Solar Atmospheres on Wednesday, March 22 to renew stronger relationships with supporting companies, and to gain a better understanding of Solar’s commitment and involvement with ASM.  Managing Director, Bill Mahoney, along with Ron Aderhold, ASM Associate Managing Director and Chief Information Officer, Fred Schmidt, ASM Vice President, and Rachel Stewart, Student Board Trustee, met with representatives from Solar and toured the facility.

ASM presented firsthand information on the objectives and progress of the ASM renewal, spearheaded by Mahoney.  Some of the objectives are pursuing an easier renewal process, developing stronger relations with affiliate societies, improving professional development, and developing a culture of excellence within the headquarters at Materials Park, OH.

Solar Atmospheres came away from this meeting with a high level of confidence with the new team at ASM Materials Park, and we are encouraged with the early results from the renewal deployments, and Solar offers complete support of the program for the betterment of the society.
