Ireland is Intel’s centre of manufacturing excellence in Europe. Since 1989, Intel has invested 6 billion turning a former 360-acre stud farm into the most advanced industrial campus in Ireland. The Leixlip, Co. Kildare site is the most technologically advanced industrial location in Europe with over 4,000 people working at the campus. In addition, there are over 200 people employed at Intel Communications Europe, located in Shannon, Co. Clare, which is the Ireland product development arm of our Communications Product Group.
Our Leixlip campus is the location of two semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities; Ireland Fab Operations, and Fab 24. These facilities produce latest generation silicon microprocessors on 200mm and 300mm wafers. These leading edge silicon products power platforms and technology advancements, which are essential to the way we learn, live and work today.
In 2009 Intel celebrated the 20th anniversary of operations in Ireland – We look forward to the next 20 years of success working as team on the Ireland site and across our community and country.
