Milpitas-based KLA-Tencor will sponsor the Silicon Valley Annual Turkey Trot’s 5K Walk/Run in downtown San Jose on Nov. 22. Employees, friends and families will participate to raise funds for the Second Harvest Food Bank, the Housing Trust of Santa Clara County and the Children’s Health Initiative of Santa Clara County.
Last week, KLA-Tencor also also announced their competition to donate thousands of meals for the Second Harvest Food Bank‘s Canned Food Drive. It started in late October and ended Monday.* The company’s goal was to raise $50,000, in addition to canned donations from employees.
In its second acquisition in only a few days, Cisco announced this weekend that it will buy cloud infrastructure company Meraki for $1.2 billion.

Menlo Park-based Elo Touch Solutions announced that the company and its 150 employees will move to Milpitas in March 2013. The touch screen focused-company has leased 75,000 square feet of office/R&D space in Milpitas’ Murphy Crossing campus at 1011 McCarthy Boulevard. They cited greater proximity to East and South Bay talent, and 20 percent more square footage, as the reasons for making the move.
Elo Touch Solutions is not the only tech company migrating to Milpitas. FrontRange Solutions, a provider of hybrid IT service management solutions, also announced last week that it will soon occupy about 27,000 square feet of space at Irvine Company’s McCarthy Center at 490 N. McCarthy Blvd. They are also looking to tap into a greater talent pool to expand its mobile and cloud technology.
