For over 40 years, Intel has introduced some of the most advanced, cutting-edge technologies in Arizona, well before they are released to the rest of the world. In fact, Arizona is home to Intel’s largest manufacturing site. In 2017, the company announced continued investment in the state with a $7 billion project, Fab 42.

“TSMC could have picked any place in the world to build this advanced manufacturing factory. They chose Arizona for our unbeatable business climate, already thriving tech sector and ready access to an international supply chain.”

 

-- Arizona Governor Doug Ducey
