SAN JOSE – ASML, a tech company with significant growth plans, has officially opened its large new tech campus in northern San Jose, saying the office and research center can accommodate several hundred workers.

“ASML’s expansion brings hundreds of additional engineers and scientists to northern San José,” said Mayor Sam Liccardo.

It is estimated that 875 ASML workers are already based in the two buildings, but the company has significant hiring plans.

“We expect pretty substantial growth next year,” Koonmen said. “We will probably see membership growth in the order of 20% next year. “
