Intel Corp. INTC 0.15% said it plans to invest at least $20 billion in new chip-making capacity in Ohio, bolstering the company’s semiconductor-production ambitions as greater demand for digital products and a global chip shortage have amplified the need for more manufacturing.
Intel said Friday it would invest in two new chip factories just outside Columbus, Ohio, to add to Intel’s effort to expand its chip-making business. The company has made more than $100 billion in investment pledges over the past year. Intel Chief Executive Pat Gelsinger said the site could eventually grow to accommodate eight chip factories, also known as FABs.
