Intel reveals recap of its 10 manufacturing projects worldwide

Intel has revealed a recap of its 10 manufacturing projects worldwide – in Arizona, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Ireland, Israel, Magdeburg, Penang and Kulim in Malaysia, and Poland.
Intel 4th Gen Xeon Scalable ProcessorsThough China and India are key markets for Intel, the semiconductor giant does not have huge funding plans in these two Asian countries.

“Intel’s manufacturing network is foundational to our operational success as we build a resilient, trusted and sustainable supply chain for the entire industry,” said Keyvan Esfarjani, executive vice president and chief global operations officer at Intel.

Arizona, US

Intel is investing more than $32 billion to build two new chip factories and to modernize an existing fab at its Ocotillo campus in Chandler, Arizona, where it will produce some of the world’s most advanced logic chips.

New Mexico, US

In January, Intel celebrated the opening of Fab 9. It’s the company’s packaging manufacturing hub and the only U.S. advanced packaging site to date. Intel is investing more than $4 billion to equip operations at Intel’s Rio Rancho campus in New Mexico for the manufacturing of semiconductor packaging. Later this year, teams will install and qualify more tools at Fabs 9 and 11x.

Ohio, US

Intel broke ground at the New Albany, Ohio, site in September 2022 and is investing $28 billion to construct two new chip factories. The initial phase of the Ohio project is expected to create 3,000 Intel jobs, 7,000 construction jobs and approximately 10,000 indirect jobs.

Oregon, US

In September 2023, Intel celebrated the groundbreaking of MSB2 – a support building adjacent to the existing D1X fab, Intel’s largest Technology Development site. Intel plans to invest $36 billion in its R&D operations in Hillsboro to deliver process technology beyond 2025.

Leixlip, Ireland

In September, Mod 1 of Fab 34 began production on the Intel 4 process technology. Fab 34 is the first fab in Europe to use EUV in manufacturing.

In January, Fab 34 celebrated its first Meteor Lake shipment. With Mod 1 operational, all eyes are on bringing the next clean room – Mod 2 – to life.

Kiryat Gat, Israel

Kiryat Gat – currently home to Intel’s most advanced manufacturing facility in Israel – will soon welcome Fab 38. Located adjacent to Fab 28, the $25 billion expansion will produce chips on EUV lithography.

The Israel site employs about 11,000 employees across four locations: Haifa (a key hardware and software development center for processors and AI), Petah Tikvah (a communication and AI solutions development center), Jerusalem (home to Mobileye’s global development center for autonomous cars and a communications, software and cybersecurity development center) and Kiryat Gat.

2024 marks 50 years of operations for Intel Israel.

Magdeburg, Germany

In June 2023, Intel announced a revised letter of intent with the German government to increase the scope of government incentives for Intel’s wafer fabrication site in Magdeburg.

Malaysia

At its Penang site in Malaysia, the $7 billion investment represents Intel’s largest advanced packaging facility for 3D packaging technology and will span a 710,000-square-foot clean room with two levels of manufacturing space.

It’s not Intel Malaysia’s only build-out. In Kulim, about an hour’s drive from Penang, Malaysia’s fifth assembly test manufacturing (ATM) factory is under construction.

Wrocław West, Poland

In June 2023, Intel revealed plans for a new assembly and test facility in Wrocław West, Poland, that would support about 2,000 employees. The $4.6 billion project will be the largest greenfield investment in the history of Poland.
