Silicon Valley has lately been a talk of town everywhere and amidst the impending high profile visit by Indian PM in the Bay area, now Samsung has officially entered the region with its new office in Silicon Valley. Sandwiched in between these buildings are a series of “green floors” with gardens and other areas of recreation, along with a lot of open space.
The 1.1-million-square-feet, 10-story building will house Samsung’s Device Solutions division, which includes memory chips, system LSI, light-emitting diode, displays and foundry works, the company added.
Samsung on Thursday formally welcomed visitors to its brand new $300 million campus in San Jose, California.
Furthermore, the corporation also assigned a $1 million to the academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) College Education Scholarship Fund as a way of celebrating its latest achievement with the Device Solutions Headquarters. Each scholarship will cover tuition and living expenses for one year.
Samsung Electronics’ semiconductor operations have long been at the forefront of innovation and with the new America headquarters, Samsung’s R&D efforts will be bolstered substantially.
Therefore, Samsung’s CSR programs are focused on backing the local community and encouraging with relevant help in order to inspire the upcoming generation of innovators with volunteer staff support and corporate donations.
“On behalf of the San Jose city council and city administration, I congratulate Samsung on the opening of its strikingly pretty new headquarters on North First Street where hundreds of employees will continue to drive innovation in its semiconductor business for many more decades to come”, Liccardo said.
