Edwards Vacuum Opens North American HQ
Edwards Vacuum, a supplier of semiconductor vacuum and abatement solutions, has completed and opened its new high-tech innovation and manufacturing centre in Hillsboro.
The 75,000-square foot, state-of-the-art facility will serve as the North American semiconductor headquarters for the U.K.-based firm, creating 100 new high-tech jobs.
Edwards is consolidating its Hillsboro staff in the new 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 employees, including a significant number of high-tech roles. Edwards plans to hire many more additional workers at the site in the coming years.
“Northwest Oregon is a growing hub for innovative businesses in the semiconductor industry and other fields,” said Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici. “This facility by Edwards Vacuum shows that our region continues to attract investment from around the world. It's exciting to see strong economic growth in our region and new opportunities for Oregonians.”
