Lam is proud to be one of nearly 2,500 companies across the United States celebrating modern manufacturing and inspiring the next generation of workers. Each October on National Manufacturing Day, U.S. manufacturers host free educational events, tours, and job fairs to expand knowledge about high-skilled, high-paying jobs in the sector and the industry’s economic impact. At these events, the public has an opportunity to learn about the products being made in their local communities, students can learn about careers in manufacturing, and schools are encouraged to recommend vocational education for students to pursue after high school graduation.

This year, our three U.S. manufacturing facilities in Fremont, CA, Livermore, CA, and Tualatin, OR, participated in National Manufacturing Day. During the events, we provided overviews of the company and our deposition, etch, and clean products and gave tours of our facilities. In addition, we had interactive demonstrations, including a live, virtual tour where students had an opportunity to speak to employees working on the manufacturing floor. Lam representatives also spoke with students about manufacturing careers and their own career paths.
