Lam Research

This semiconductor capital equipment firm is now a star financial performer and acknowledged leader in its industry.  Lam has dramatically outperformed the comparison group of industry stalwarts Applied Materials, Novellus and KLA-Tencor:

Superior revenue growth and operational excellence have combined to drive Lam’s performance.  TRG is a key contributor to this sustained performance, working in partnership with Lam over several years to convert operational strategy into bottom line results.  Our joint projects have made a big difference, particularly in Lam’s aftermarket consumable and spare parts business and provide significant green supply chain benefits.

Jim Goodrich, Sr. Director, Strategic Commodity Management, stated “TRG's approach and capabilities provided us with rapid product cost reduction results. Even with our ongoing supply chain management efforts, we would not have achieved either the speed or magnitude of benefit TRG was able to deliver. Their expertise and ability to work objectively with all levels of our organization, coupled with hands-on involvement in direct negotiations with our suppliers made them extremely effective."
