Applied Materials COMPANY PROFILE
Applied Materials, Inc. is the global leader in providing innovative
equipment, services and software to enable the manufacture of advanced
semiconductor, flat panel display and solar photovoltaic products. Our
technologies help make innovations like smart phones, flat screen TVs
and solar panels more affordable and accessible to consumers and
businesses around the world. At Applied Materials, we turn today’s
innovations into the industries of tomorrow.
TURNING INNOVATIONS INTO INDUSTRIES
A brilliant idea created in a laboratory without thought of how to
commercialize it remains just that, an idea. An idea that languishes on a
shelf in the lab is of little worth to the market for which it was
But an idea that can be efficiently manufactured, on a massive scale,
can become affordable and has the ability to create entirely new
markets. These are the ideas that can change everything.
Applied Materials, our mission is to help turn next generation
technology into profitable new market opportunities for our customers.
With over 40 years' experience, we are the global leader in creating
high-volume nano manufacturing technology and equipment. In that time,
we've helped high-tech manufacturers improve factory efficiency and
end-product performance, effectively creating and taking advantage of
market growth opportunities.
We are the company behind the scenes of some of the industries that have helped changed the world as we know it.
From systems that revolutionized and continue to expand the
semiconductor industry, to technology that enables the production of
flat panel displays, which are increasingly bigger, thinner and less
expensive. We have helped drive the expansion of profitable markets for
personal computers, mobile phones, and LCD TVs. By helping our customers
increase production while relentlessly reducing inefficiency and waste,
we've helped create new markets, new jobs and new technological
possibilities, in other words, we've helped to develop new industries.
And now we are doing for the green economy what we did for the
Information Age. We're helping companies manufacture the world's highest
efficiency solar panels, which drive down the cost of renewable energy;
energy-efficient architectural glass which helps control heating and
cooling costs; and advanced LED technologies to produce more
energy-efficient lighting solutions.
The next great technological breakthrough is occurring in a laboratory
somewhere as we speak. And we're poised, once again, to help turn that
innovation into a flourishing global industry.
