UnitySC, an advanced inspection and metrology solutions provider for the semiconductor and related industries, has announced the appointment of Kamel Ait-Mahiout as chief executive officer. Ait-Mahiout has also been elected to serve on the company board of directors.

Following the company's recent announcement of the acquisition of HSEB Dresden, GmbH, this appointment marks the next step of the UnitySC’s aggressive growth strategy for its process control solutions.

"It is a pivotal time to be joining UnitySC. The company has built a strong reputation for technology and market leadership, particularly in new semiconductor applications, and has significant growth potential driven by its ambitious strategy," said Ait-Mahiout.

During that time, he successfully restructured Amkor Europe, strategically positioning the company as a dynamic, customer-oriented and commercially strong organization. Under his watch, Amkor Europe's revenue grew by more than 60%, despite the region's challenging competitive environment.
