San Jose, CA—Samsung Research America (SRA), a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., broke ground for its new 8.5-acre campus in Mountain View, California.
With $187.8 billion in sales and 270,000 employees across 79 countries, Samsung Electronics has been a presence in Silicon Valley for more than three decades. The R&D center will provide a state-of-the-art campus that can support the current rapid growth in the organization, and also provide the infrastructure to support Samsung’s open innovation and university collaboration activities.
“Our new state-of-the-art R&D center will provide an outstanding environment to support our plans for strategic growth and attracting the very best employees,” said Daniel Eum, president of SRA. “This expansion, in addition to Samsung Semiconductor Inc.’s new San Jose campus, builds upon Samsung’s 35-year history in the Bay Area and reinforces our commitment to the valley.”
The campus will include two six-story class-A office buildings totaling approximately 385,000 square feet and two parking structures—one five stories and the other six. Expected occupancy is December 2014 in the buildings being designed in accordance with LEED Gold and LEED Platinum certification standards.
Beyond Silicon Valley, Samsung is continuing to expand its facilities across the United States, with increased investments and significant new employment opportunities. samsung.com
