Solving and Succeeding Together

Hello and welcome to a very special place. I have always viewed MKS as a team of collaborative problem-solvers, vested in the success of our customers and dedicated equally to science, engineering, technology and service.

MKS Instruments partners with customers in the thin film, process manufacturing, environmental monitoring and life sciences industries to develop ground-breaking solutions to their toughest technology challenges. Our work enables our customers to be more successful, and our societies to be safer and more productive.

The chances are high that you own or have consumed a product that has been made possible by our technology. I am very proud of that.

Founded in 1961, MKS is a successful and respected company. We are organized into two divisions: the Vacuum and Analysis division which has a broad range of technologies in pressure measurement, power, plasma, flow, chemistry, automation and control and analysis; and the Light and Motion division with a broad range of technologies in lasers, photonics instrumentation, sub-micron positioning, vibration isolation, and optics.

We have grown both organically and through acquisition. We have a record of steady profitable growth and industry-changing innovations. We also have an operating model that is acknowledged to deliver consistently superior performance.

As a team, we try hard to foster an MKS culture based on:

  • Open communication - we encourage you to speak your mind
  • Fearless innovation - honest mistakes are how we learn to be successful
  • Pervasive collaboration - with each other and with our customers
  • Deep dedication - we work hard to ensure the success of our customers and MKS.

If that sounds like your kind of workplace, then come join a leader. We would love to have you as part of our MKS team.
