Lam Research Wins East Bay Innovation Award for Advanced Manufacturing
Mar 15, 2017
Five years ago, the East Bay Economic Development Alliance created a showcase for innovation that perfectly conveys the unique local ecosystem’s nurturing of transformative ideas and products. The East Bay Innovation Awards honors competitors in nine different categories including clean tech, engineering and design, life sciences, and advanced manufacturing.
Advanced manufacturing is the backbone of our local economy and is a category that we covet. Therefore, we were thrilled to see Lam Research, an anchor tenant in the Fremont Innovation District, take home this prestigious award. Lam’s local operations, present in both Fremont and Livermore, focuses on the designing, engineering, and manufacturing of semiconductor chip process equipment. Lam joins two other Fremont companies that are both past winners in this category, Tesla and Boehringer Ingleheim.
Congratulations to Lam Research and to the other impressive winners who are featured in this five-minute mini-documentary.
Welcome to our blog – Takes from Silicon Valley East! Our view is slightly different here on the east side of the bay – from the Mission Peak backdrop to the advanced manufacturing companies that dot our boulevards. As we become more urban and strive to interpret the business issues affecting our innovation economy, we want to share with you our observations, insights, photos, arguments, agreements, inspirations and CEO interviews – and here on our blog is exactly where we plan to do this.
