Reportedly, Intel Corporation (INTC) announced that they will be investing of up to $100 billion to build the world’s largest chip-making complex in Ohio, focussed to boost capacity amid a global shortage of semiconductors used in everything from smartphones to cars.
The step is part of Chief Executive Officer Pat Gelsinger’s strategy to restore Intel’s dominance in chip making and reduce America’s reliance on tight-held Asian manufacturing hubs. An initial $20 billion investment, the largest in Ohio’s history on a 1,000-acre site in New Albany, will generate 3,000 direct Intel jobs with eight total fabrication plants and is the largest investment in Ohio’s history, informed the CEO. He further informed that Intel’s plans for new factories will not alleviate the current supply crunch, because such complexes take years to build and expects the chip shortages to persist into 2023.
The company’s ambitious Ohio investment is expected to attract partners and suppliers, driving interest from Applied Materials, Air Products, Ultra Clean Technology, and LAM Research in establishing a presence in the region, the company informed. Construction of the first two factories is reported to begin late in 2022 and production to start in 2025.
