March 19, 2012 - Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., a Fortune 1000 semiconductor company headquartered in Silicon Valley, Calif., will celebrate the grand opening of its 138,000 square-foot Lone Star building in Farmers Branch, Texas on March 23, 2012.
The campus is Maxim's second largest site. With more than 800 employees, it is a centerpiece for the design, manufacturing and marketing of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs) as well as business management functions. Maxim broke ground on the central building, which will house more than 500 employees, in December 2010.
Maxim is in the process of obtaining Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification for the new building, which contains many energy-efficient features, including automated lighting and control systems that help reduce energy consumption by 37 percent, double-paned insulated windows with low e-coating, a chilled water air conditioning system, and a roof that reflects heat.
