Lam Research Corporation
As a leading supplier of wafer fabrication equipment and services to the global semiconductor industry, Lam Research develops innovative solutions that help our customers build smaller, faster, and more power-efficient electronic devices — the kind that are driving the proliferation of technology into our everyday lives. Lam Research offers a broad portfolio of market-leading thin film deposition, plasma etch, photoresist strip, and wafer cleaning solutions for front-end wafer processing and advanced packaging applications. Comprehensive customer support offerings deliver value throughout the equipment lifecycle, from system installation, production ramp, and new technology upgrades through end-of-life asset management.
Founded in 1980, the Nasdaq listed Lam Research Corporation is headquartered in Fremont, CA (USA). The 16 global offices have a total staff of about 6,900 persons, including more than 500 employees working at Villach's manufacturing site. Around 20% of these are international experts (from Germany, Italy, Slovenia, the USA and 25 more nations).
Lam has hired a significant number of foreigners from Europe and overseas in the past 5 years. The CIC has been a strong help for these employees to make this area their home. The partnership with the CIC on the International School Carinthia has enabled Lam to bring over expats with critical skills that we would not have been able to do otherwise because of the schools. We are very grateful to the CIC and their partnership with us.
