Tech giant Samsung Electronics opened the doors to its Device Solutions America headquarters in San Jose in September 2015, ushering in a new era of innovation.
The company has been very successful with its semiconductor operations in the past. With the US headquarters, Samsung has been able to boost its research and development in the field, innovating from the San Jose area.
During the opening ceremonies at San Jose, Oh-Hyun Kwon, Vice Chairman and CEO of Samsung Electronics, said “We are transforming Samsung into a world-class example of a truly market-focused technology company.”
He added that the company is “laying the groundwork for a more aggressive pace of growth over the next several decades.”
The new headquarters brought various organizations and employees together into one building, with research labs devoted to studying semiconductors, LED encapsulants, lights and displays. Staff, working together in one building, are better able to share research and set goals.
From quartz wafers to synthetic quartz wafers and substrates, Samsung has shown a commitment to understanding and researching semiconductor technology.
When the headquarters opened, Samsung’s President of its Device Solutions America operations, Jaesoo Han, said, “Today represents a major milestone as we open our most strategically important Samsung facility in the U.S. and also our biggest investment in Silicon Valley.” He went on to say that “Samsung’s goal is nothing less than to develop the best next-generation technologies for device solutions.”
The structure itself is built around nature and designed to encourage collaboration and contact between staff members, assisting in research and development efforts.
The company also dedicated time and funds to various philanthropic efforts with the opening of the new headquarters, showing a commitment to the community at large as well as the industry.
Samsung joins various other industry giants in the San Jose area, putting it in a great location for collaboration and convenience. You can expect great research to come out of Silicon Valley in the future, when it comes to semiconductors and other related technology.
Having Samsung Electronics open new headquarters in the US has helped with innovation in the field of semiconductors, with research and development focused on areas like LED encapsulants and quartz wafers. The company is still going strong, and the new headquarters have made an impact in Silicon Valley and beyond.
