In 1989, Lam Research opened its first office in Asia Pacific. Since then, we have expanded our footprint totaling nearly 50 offices across the region – including opening two new manufacturing facilities in Malaysia and Korea in the past year alone.  

In many parts of Asia, this week marks the beginning of the Lunar New Year and the “Year of the Tiger.” Each year is thought to take on the characteristics of an animal — one of twelve that cycle in the Asian Zodiac. Tigers are symbolic of bravery, strength and power. This year is also associated with the water element – one of five influences believed to impact the temperament of the year’s animal. The water element is believed to correspond with the traits of creativity, flexibility and intuition.  

We’re excited to see what the new year will bring. From all of us here at Lam Research: we wish you good fortune for the year ahead.
