FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lam Research Corp.
(Nasdaq: LRCX) today announced the expansion of its manufacturing footprint in
Oregon with a new 45,000 square foot facility in the city of Sherwood, planned
to open in December 2021. Lam is one of the largest suppliers of semiconductor
manufacturing equipment in the world, and this new site will supply chipmakers
with the critical tools needed to build chips that power advanced electronic
devices. The new facility is Lam’s fifth manufacturing site in the United
States and will further enhance its resilience and ability to meet increasing
customer demand, as chip suppliers seek to ramp up production globally.

Lam expects its new facility to create approximately 300 new jobs and career
opportunities for residents of the Sherwood and Washington County communities,
including armed forces veterans, college students and high school graduates.
Many of the openings will be staffed through Lam’s contracted staffing
agencies, including Acara Solutions and Randstad USA. Benefits are expected to
include a multi-week paid training program that teaches highly sought-after
skills for semiconductor and technology industry jobs, a sign-on bonus,
competitive wages, paid time-off options, paid holidays, and healthcare

“We are building the manufacturing workforce of the future—from our
comprehensive training program and next-generation manufacturing techniques,
to our agile and collaborative work environment,” said Tim Archer, president
and CEO of Lam Research. “As we continue to expand our manufacturing
operations, we are pleased to open a second facility in Oregon. We appreciate
the productive partnership with the city of Sherwood and look forward to being
an active member of their business community.”

“We are excited to work with Lam Research as they expand into our city,”
said Keith Mays, Mayor of Sherwood, Oregon. “Having a leading semiconductor
manufacturing equipment company in Sherwood will create new high-quality jobs
and bring significant economic impact to our community.”

New team members will start their training program at Lam’s nearby site in
Tualatin, Oregon until the new manufacturing building opens in Sherwood.
Available positions include assemblers, test technicians, engineering
technicians, and material handlers.

Both Acara Solutions and Randstad USA are hosting ongoing virtual job fairs
for the Lam manufacturing positions. Job candidates seeking more information
