Agere buy = LSI Logic's back

How about this for a familiar story? A national company opens an office in Rochester. Then it closes the office. Soon after another company swoops in to take advantage of the tech skills left behind.

And then the first company buys the second one. So the people hired by the newcomer, suddenly are working for the company that fired them… again.

This time it is LSI Logic that is back in town. LSI, which abruptly closed up shop in Rochester in March, has purchased Agere Systems. Agere recently moved into the former IBM white buildings. As you can seen in the photo, Agere hasn't even had time to put up a permanent label on the mailbox in the 1033 building, across from Timberlodge Steak House.

So by my calculation this is the latest in what appears to be a chain of employers for a handful of Rochester engineers.

Seagate
Xiotech
Maxtor or LSI Logic
