TAIPEI -- ASML Holding, one of the world's top suppliers of chipmaking machinery, will hire 600 engineers in Taiwan this year to help meet fast-growing demand for its equipment amid the global shortage of semiconductors.

The local workforce will expand about 20% to 3,400, mainly in response to rising orders from key customer Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. The island, a hub of chipmakers, generates roughly 40% of the Dutch company's total net sales and is its biggest contributor by region.
