Lam Research Corporation (Nasdaq: LRCX), a Fortune 500 company providing semiconductor fabrication equipment and services, is expanding in the City of Manassas.
Lam Research will open an office at 9300 West Courthouse Road in Historic Downtown Manassas to support their growing team of equipment installers, service technicians, engineers, and other staff. The company, headquartered in Freemont, California, is a major supplier of semiconductor machinery and equipment for Micron, the City’s largest employer.
With the first phase of Micron’s historic $3 billion expansion in Manassas nearing completion, Lam Research’s on-site teams are busy scaling up installation and maintenance of numerous machines in the wafer manufacturing processes.
As a global supplier of innovative wafer fabrication equipment and services to the semiconductor industry, Lam’s equipment and services allow customers to build smaller and better performing devices. In fact, today, nearly every advanced chip is built with some kind of Lam technology.
“Lam Research is an integral partner in the semiconductor industry’s growth and critical manufacturing operations,” says City of Manassas Mayor Michelle Davis-Younger. “We’re thrilled to have the Lam team locate in the City and look forward to their contributions in designing and building world-class, Manassas-made semiconductors.”
Thanks to Manassas’s ideal location, adaptive workforce, and proactive Economic Development programs, the City has helped foster a community where innovative businesses like Lam Research find success. In turn, our City employers provide quality employment opportunities for our residents – resulting in Manassas having the fourth highest wages in Virginia for Professional and Technical Service occupations.
