Lam Research – Why Work For Us?



​​​​​​​​Corporate Overview​​​​​​​​

Lam Research Corporation is a major supplier of wafer fabrication equipment and services to the worldwide semiconductor industry, where we have been advancing semiconductor manufacturing for more than 30 years. With the ongoing and growing demand for feature-rich consumer products, chipmakers are challenged to mass produce highly sophisticated devices. To keep pace and meet challenging production requirements, semiconductor manufacturers will need to invest in highly versatile and reliable wafer fabrication equipment.

Lam’s recent merger with Novellus Systems, Inc., has created a broad portfolio of complementary product capabilities that includes Lam’s leadership in etch and single-wafer clean and Novellus’ leadership in thin film deposition and photoresist strip. The combined company is well positioned to lead the global semiconductor industry through the next critical technology transitions, including 3D structures in advanced devices and scaling to 450 mm wafers.

With corporate headquarters located in Fremont, California, the Company maintains a network of facilities throughout Asia, North America, and Europe to meet the complex and changing needs of its global customer base.
