The company intends to start building its new factory later this year for her. be fully operational by 2025.

In total, the manufacturer’s new plant will have more than 400 hectares and, initially, will have only two factories for the production of chips.

“Intel’s actions will help build a more resilient supply chain and ensure reliable access to advanced semiconductors for years to come. Intel is bringing capabilities and leadership capabilities back to the United States to strengthen the global semiconductor industry. These factories will create a new epicenter for advanced chip manufacturing in the US that will bolster Intel’s domestic lab-to-manufacturing pipeline and strengthen Ohio’s leadership in research and high technology.”
– Said Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger.

This investment from Intel is the same as the company’s main competitors, TSMC and Samsung, they are doing. The two companies also announced that they will, respectively, set up factories in Arizona and Texas to further increase research and development of new semiconductors in the future.
