应用材料公司简介

  应用材料公司是全球最大的半导体生产设备和高科技技术服务企业,为财富500强全球化发展增长型企业之一,2003年收入达44.7亿美元并连续9年在半导体生产设备领域独占鳌头。应用材料公司自1967年成立至今三十多年来一直都是领导信息时代的先驱,为全球信息产业的迅猛发展和高速增长提供了技术的可能。目前在全球13个国家和地区的90多个生产销售和服务机构中,12,000多名高素质的员工为我们的客户打造着全球每一块芯片。

  应用材料公司在2002年被评选为100家最受推崇的美国公司之一;最佳接受少数族裔的公司之一等其他奖项。作为全球化的公司,应用材料公司早在1984 年就在中国开始业务并且成为第一个在中国的外资半导体生产设备供应商。应用材料公司的脚步也随着中国半导体工业和集成电路产业的发展向前迈进。应用材料公司于1997年正式在中国注册独资公司。中国公司总部也已落户上海浦东张江高科技园区,在北京、天津、苏州和无锡设有办事处和零配件仓库,并把上海作为全球技术培训中心之一。随着中国经济的迅猛发展和稳定增长,应用材料公司对中国半导体工业和集成电路产业的发展和市场远景满怀希望和信心并做出长期的承诺。

  应用材料公司不仅在设备、技术和服务上以全球统一的质量体系来高质量、高水平地服务我们在中国的客户,例如在上海的上海华虹NEC半导体制造有限公司、上海先进半导体制造有限公司、中芯国际集成电路制造(上海)有限公司、宏力半导体制造有限公司;应用材料公司还积极推动中国半导体工业和集成电路产业的发展。应用材料公司于1994年起与上海市科学技术委员会共同设立“上海-应用材料研究与发展基金”。至今,应用材料公司已经投入了200多万美元的专款用来支持大学和研究机构进行微电子和信息技术的基础研究和应用开发,以促进中国信息技术及其产业化的发展。

  应用材料公司不仅和业界保持着良好的伙伴关系还同中国政府保持着长期的友好往来。应用材料公司的董事长詹姆斯·摩根先生早在1984年就与时任中国电子工业部副部长的江泽民主席有过友好往来,江主席也曾在访美期间欣然应邀参观应用材料公司。除此之外,摩根先生还分别参加了1999年和2001年的财富论坛以及2001年在上海举行的APEC工商领导人峰会并主持高科技分会的研讨。鉴于摩根先生对中国半导体及集成电路事业的关心和贡献,上海市政府曾经于 1999年向他授予了“白玉兰荣誉奖”。

   应用材料公司带给我们的不仅是高质量的设备、尖端的科学技术、全方位高效率的服务、先进有效的管理理念和高素质的人才,还带给我们一个承诺,就是:应用材料公司将和中国的半导体工业和集成电路产业共同发展、一起成长。


  始于1967年,如今成长为领先的半导体设备厂商,应用材料利用科技改变了人们生活的方式。

A growing number of people are embracing the technology that Applied Materials enables. Whether using more powerful and affordable chips for a widening array of applications, viewing media on energy-saving flat panel displays or employing solar technology to provide cost-effective, environmentally-friendly energy, billions of people around the world benefit from these advances. The opportunity to improve the way people live is the powerful motivator that drives the innovative thinking and technical solutions made possible by Applied Materials.

  越来越多的人在感受着应用材料公司赋予的科技力量,这不仅包含着采用更强大和廉价的芯片却提供更广泛的应用、采用更节能的平板显示器来观看视频,也包含着采用太阳能科技来提供资源节约、环境友好的能源,数以亿计的人在享受着这一切。

The Founding Years

In 1967, it would still be decades before the term “Information Age” entered the general vocabulary. The microprocessor had not been invented and the first personal computer was years away. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were in junior high school. The cell phone was only a concept. And work on ARPANET, the forerunner of today’s Internet, had just begun. Few people at the time could have predicted that the technology industry would grow so rapidly or become as large as it is today. And, without Applied Materials it would not have been possible.

Right Business, Right Time, Right Capabilities

Applied Materials was at a crossroads when Jim Morgan became president. The company was in default of its bank loans and engaged in more businesses than it could handle. The challenge Morgan faced was to make sure Applied Materials had the right capabilities to take advantage of every opportunity. That meant making substantive changes and taking risks in nearly every part of the company. If done well, Applied Materials stood a chance of one day becoming a great global competitor.

Innovation, Commercialization, Quality

Scientific discovery is essential for staying at the cutting edge of technology, but innovations have to be turned into commercial products that customers want to buy before they can be considered a success. Finding ways to combine the best of both worlds, innovation and commercialization, is what continues to inspire the technologists of Applied Materials.

Great Global Competitor

There is arguably no industry or technology more global than semiconductors. The capital, brainpower and equipment that fuel the semiconductor industry flow almost effortlessly around the globe to wherever they are most needed. To compete in an industry of this kind requires a company that is equally global and flexible—one that works across boundaries and can embrace the cultures of its customers and its employees whereever they may reside. That is a good description of the kind of company Applied Materials has evolved into over the years.

Total Solutions

No longer was Applied Materials a small, relatively unknown company selling obscure machinery. Now it was a multibillion-dollar corporation with thousands of global employees, providing an array of sophisticated equipment that makes virtually every new semiconductor chip and liquid crystal flat panel display in the world. By any measure, the company was the industry leader. But as strong as Applied Materials was, there was an opportunity to be even better—a chance to use its unique capabilities to offer customers new solutions and services.

Bright Future

As predictable and inevitable as technological innovation appears to be, the future must still be created. Across the company, we are working to develop products that not only serve customers' needs, but conserve the Earth's natural resources, and make alternative energy and environmental solutions both accessible and affordable. At Applied Materials, the objective is clear—to continuously reduce our environmental footprint while creating innovative technologies that enable a cleaner, smarter and better planet.
