Company Overview

At MKS Instruments we have a long history of leveraging our collective curiosity to understand and develop solutions that are at the core of many key technological innovations. These innovations have driven accelerated roadmaps for Semiconductor, Industrial, Life and Health Sciences, Research and Defense markets.

Our Vision: Enabling Technologies that Transform Our World

Our mission is to be the innovation leader and trusted partner that pushes the boundaries of possibility.

Leading the Way Through Innovation

Innovation is our underlying growth engine – inventions lead to new product introductions, which lead to design wins, which lead to long-term revenue. Our relentless focus on innovation starts with taking the time to truly understand our customers’ most complex problems – then designing innovative solutions to solve them.


Integrity Starts with Trust
When our customers have a complex problem to solve, they turn to MKS as a trusted partner. We’re proud of the strong relationships we’ve thoughtfully cultivated over years of technical and application collaboration. Because of this solid foundation built on mutual trust, our customers, who have strong pipelines, engage us in their new programs. We consider this a high honor.

We also partner closely with our suppliers. It’s the way we do business and it’s our investment in ensuring that our supply chain can deliver critical products when our customers need them.


Pushing the Boundaries of Possibilities
The solutions we create bring the future to life – that’s what pushing the boundaries of possibilities is all about. Today’s most exciting technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and autonomous vehicles are all enabled by our broad portfolio of vacuum products, power solutions, gas delivery, plasma generation, ozone solutions, lasers, photonics, precision optics, motion, and PCB laser processing.

Guiding Principles

At MKS, we follow four guiding principles—these are the values that we aspire to live and work by every day.

  • Grow
    We strive to deliver sustainable and profitable growth by focusing on three key areas: solving our customer’s most critical problems, identifying and investing in high growth areas, and leading in financial performance.
  • Win As a Team
    We believe in the power of collaboration. To win as a team, we think holistically for the enterprise, then the employee’s organization, and then the individual. Our people make the difference between good companies and great companies. We strive to be a great company and invest in developing our people, honoring mutual respect and constructive candor, and a deep commitment to diversity and inclusion.
  • Innovate to the Core
    Innovation requires a blend of curiosity and courage. We empower our people to question, challenge, and think beyond what we’ve always done. “What if” is a welcome phrase at MKS. Our teams are always exploring new ideas and ways of thinking that can drive accelerated cadence and breakthroughs, and we stay vigilant for new opportunities and for potential disruptions.
  • Own It
    Each and every team member is an owner – we all have a stake in the Company’s success and our commitment to our customers and suppliers. We focus on being accountable at both the team and individual level and practice disciplined improvement at every turn to ensure we bring our best game every day.
