Samsung opens massive new Silicon Valley HQ

Samsung has announced the opening of a brand new office in Silicon Valley, the home of Apple, Google, and Facebook.

Of course, Samsung has had an office in the area since 1983, but not at this scale.

The 1.1-million-square-foot campus will combine various research labs for the company’s semiconductor, LED, and display businesses. It will also be the new home for a number of support staff, as well as sales and marketing teams.

To that end, the new campus will house an initial 700 members of staff, with the potential to host up to 2,000. Samsung CEO Oh-Hyun Kwon says that the new office would lay the groundwork for “a more aggressive pace of growth over the next several decades.”
