Intel said Tuesday it will spend $7 billion over the next two years to roll out 32 nanometer manufacturing plants in the U.S.
The chip giant said the investment will be made in existing manufacturing sites in Oregon, Arizona and New Mexico and create 7,000 jobs (statement).
CEO Paul Otellini said the effort is designed to bolster U.S. manufacturing and push 32 nm factories, which were described as “truly extraordinary.” Intel noted that 75 percent of its manufacturing operations are in the U.s. along with its R&D and capital investments.
