Applied Materials has been an integral part of this country’s semiconductor ecosystem since 1978, when we established a sales and service operation near Paris to support a major chipmaker in that area. In 1992, Applied Materials France was formed, our facilities were expanded, and headquarters were relocated to the Grenoble vicinity in response to the aggressive semiconductor industry and academic/research growth in that region.
Our employees' mission in France is to provide world-class, cost effective solutions for device manufacturers. Through our sales, R&D, process- and equipment engineering and advanced remote and on-site maintenance services, we are helping customers produce the microchips, transistors and interconnects that make possible the technological innovations of the future.

Customer and Product Support
Our sales, customer service and specialized equipment and process support teams focus on providing customers with world class service, from order through installation and start-up, and with ongoing maintenance, troubleshooting and upgrades.
The team’s extensive cross-disciplinary experience, coupled with their ability to leverage Applied Materials’ global supply chain and access the company’s extensive knowledge base and infrastructure, help support our customers’ continuous improvement and success.
Applied Materials is an active participant in the important Minatec Grenoble Innovation Cluster, a joint government, industry and academic initiative aimed at developing advanced materials, test applications or enhanced processes for micro- and nanotechnology research and applications. Applied supports this effort with investments in dedicated equipment, engineering capabilities and expertise for R&D initiatives and advanced technology pilot lines.
Applied Materials is committed to contributing in meaningful ways to making a difference in the lives of people in the local communities in which we operate. We strive to support important initiatives large and small in the areas of education, environment, health and human services, and in the empowerment of individuals.
We also encourage active participation by our employees in volunteer opportunities that enable them to connect with causes close to their hearts and to invest their time and energy in meaningful ways.
At Applied Materials France, our people regularly participate in sporting events, such as the recent 2020 Asparun Marathon for children with illnesses or disabilities. Our Employee Green Team has undertaken aggressive programs to develop environmentally friendly, sustainable solutions within our operations to reduce carbon footprint. And they have even developed a bee-keeping capability adjacent to the Applied Materials facility to protect and propagate honey bees–and to produce some delicious honey for employees!
