Italy Overview

Applied Materials Italy

Applied Materials Italy is a strategic partner and enabler to the semiconductor industry in this country and to the global solar industry. Our first facility was established in Milan in 1980 to support the growing semiconductor business. Since then, the company has expanded to serve semiconductor, solar and semiconductor software/applications markets.

Our headquarters are now in Treviso, which is also home to Applied’s Solar Systems operations. In areas surrounding Milan, Avezzano and Catania we support a large and growing number of prominent semiconductor and IC manufacturers specializing in high-demand technologies to enable innovative IoT, communication, automotive, power and sensor applications. Applied’s team in Reggio Emilia focuses on advanced software development and applications designed to accelerate technology innovations for the global semiconductor industry.
