Edwards Vacuum opens North American semiconductor HQ in Hillsboro

UK-based semiconductor vacuum and abatement equipment maker Edwards Vacuum has completed and opened its new innovation and manufacturing center in Hillsboro, OR, USA, which will serve as its North American semiconductor headquarters, creating 100 new jobs.

Edwards is consolidating its Hillsboro staff in the 75,000ft2 facility. Previously, the firm had more than 150 employees in multiple Hillsboro locations. The new 8-acre site is located on NE Century Boulevard, and will house more than 250 staff. Edwards plans to hire many more workers at the site in the coming years.

“Northwest Oregon is a growing hub for innovative businesses in the semiconductor industry and other fields,” says Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici. The Greater Portland region is a global hub for chipmakers, with Intel, Qorvo and Jireh Semiconductor employing tens of thousands of workers conducting research, development and production in Hillsboro.

The location in ‘Silicon Forest’ allows Edwards Vacuum to work closely with key Pacific Northwest accounts. “Edwards is fully committed to the Northwest Region, creating jobs and participating in the local growth, as environmentally conscious corporate stewards in the neighbourhood,” says Scott Balaguer, general manager for Edwards Vacuum’s Semiconductor Division North America. “We anticipate continued expansion on site as we plan to design and manufacture our integrated vacuum and abatement production solutions, as well as other world-class products in our portfolio,” he adds.
