HyRel Technologies Commences Operations At Manufacturing Facility In Peoria

The $15 million production facility will create 50 new jobs


PEORIA, AZ (February 15, 2023) — HyRel Technologies, a global provider of quick turn semiconductor modification solutions, announced it has commenced operations of its manufacturing facility in Peoria, Arizona, creating 50 new jobs.

Representing a $15 million investment, the custom 20,000-square-foot facility will be geared towards touchless robotic processing systems for microelectronic components, semiconductors, tape and reel, component recovery, and NPI/contract manufacturing services. HyRel provides services to aerospace, defense, medical, industrial, commercial and OEM. HyRel is also focused on industry-leading tin-mitigation processes, utilizing their unique microrobotic systems.

“Since my co-founder Scott Baker and I launched HyRel Technologies, it has always been the end goal to move to Arizona, no other state has such a commitment to building a thriving and resilient national semiconductor industry,” said Brian Watson, Founder of HyRel Technologies. “From the Arizona Commerce Authority’s ‘first-of-its-kind’ National Semiconductor Economic Roadmap plan and dedicated investments to the industry, to the white glove service we’ve received from the City of Peoria in helping find our facility, we are very excited to launch this chapter and draw upon the wealth of expertise in the West Valley area.”

“One of my passions is also to develop new talent by providing hands-on educational opportunities for local students,” said Watson. “We are very excited to announce that we are working with our first class of four interns from Cactus High School to learn and develop robotic systems.”

HyRel Technologies is dedicated to expanding their vocational and internship offerings, not only by placing interns within the company, but within other companies in the region–and other states–so that they can increase the diversity and number of students who join the bright future of Arizona’s semiconductor industry, as well as retraining skilled workers on the newest technology to bring economic growth to the area.

“We are proud to welcome HyRel Technologies’ new manufacturing facility to Peoria,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “HyRel’s high-tech facility highlights Arizona’s attractiveness for emerging technologies while diversifying the state’s ever-growing semiconductor industry.”

“Peoria is focused on attracting high tech industries that are the future of our city,” said Peoria Mayor Jason Beck. “Businesses are choosing Peoria because of our commitment to economic growth and workforce development.”
