Samsung’s Texas plant will be built from $ 17 billion

Samsung Electronics has chosen the location of its new US plant. According to a statement issued jointly by the company and the state government, the new plant could be set up in Taylor, Texas (the company will have its second plant in Texas) and a total greenfield investment of about $ 17 billion, part of its gigantic $ 206 billion investment framework announced by the Korean multi.

Construction of the new Texas plant could begin in the first half of next year, and the plant could begin production in 2024, illustrating that putting up and commissioning semiconductor plants is by no means a trivial project that could be dismantled in a few months. The plant will employ 2,000 workers, mostly engineers, and 6,500 will be involved in the construction of the facility, the report said.

In addition to the Texas site, Arizona and New York State competed for the plant, and Samsung ultimately opted for Taylor, a much larger complex than the existing Austin plant, due to the stability of the Texas infrastructure, government support, and most recently the proximity of the other plant. – The plant is located on more than five million square meters near the city of Austin.

Samsung has not yet specified exactly what it will produce on the new production lines, however, it is expected that chips for advanced mobile phones and other high-performance processing equipment will be made in the factory using a 5nm process. Austin currently operates with 18 and 28 nanometer manufacturing technology.
