Rooted in Japan, branched in Europe: Growing solutions together
Since its foundation, the ROHM Group has already committed itself to support society's development and enriching people’s lives. Rooted in Japan, the company has grown into a globally operating corporate group with production facilities, design centers and sales offices in many countries of the world. In the middle of Europe lies the EMEA branch with Headquarters near Düsseldorf, as well as offices in France, England, Spain, Italy, and the Software Design Center in Finland. The idea behind this branched structure is to think globally and act locally. This way ROHM aims to provide customers all over Europe with expert contact persons who can grasp complex issues in the respective language and contribute to the solutions of design challenges.
“Our goal is to provide electronic solutions for the future and support our customers as a competent partner and consultant. Next to technical support, for example, via our European power lab, personal exchange with our partners and careful listening regarding our industry’s and customers’ needs is key to creating tailor-made solutions in the long run.”
Wolfram Harnack, President ROHM Semiconductor Europe
Company mission: Quality is our top priority at all times. Our objective is to contribute to the advancement and progress of culture through a consistent supply, under all circumstances, of high-quality products in large volumes to the global market.
Electronics for the Future: ROHM will continue to support the development of society and the enrichment of people's lives into the future by solving a variety of societal issues with our electronic technology.
Management vision: We focus on power and analog solutions and solve social problems by contributing to our customers' needs for energy saving and miniaturization of their products.
"Quality First" is the foundation of everything that ROHM practices. Quality is not limited to the performance of finished products but includes cost, delivery, service and environment as well. We at ROHM believe that quality represents the customer's level of satisfaction in all these areas.
“The Quality Assurance Center (QAC), which is included at ROHM's European Headquarters in Willich, was founded already more than 20 years ago to ensure the local support structure based on customer needs. ROHM’s local support is an extension of the corporate quality strategy to offer a high level of customer service. With state-of-the-art investigation equipment problems can be assessed and analyzed quickly, and a correspondingly fast reaction is ensured.”
Dirk Peters, QA Department Manager ROHM Semiconductor Europe

ROHM established the Power Lab in Germany in order to strengthen customer support in Europe. The facility is focused on system and application levels. It allows to do tests on SiC MOSFETs, SiC Schottky diodes as well as IGBTs and gate drivers at DC voltages of up to 8000 volts.
