Business Continuity

Kulicke & Soffa's Business Continuity Management provides a framework for building organizational resilience with the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interests of K&S' key stakeholders, reputation, brand, and value-creating activities.

Designed to facilitate the resumption of our business operations arising from a disaster scenario which impacts the business operations through the activation of he Business Continuity Plan (BCP), is unique to each K&S location.
