Chipmaker Intel has announced that it is investing US $ 20 billion in two new chip plants in the US and is transferring additional chips to third-party foundries. Pat Gelsinger, Intel’s new CEO, also introduced a new office for a company called Intel Foundry Services to become a major provider of casting capacity in the US and Europe and serve customers worldwide.

Since Apple released its breakthrough iPhone more than a decade ago. Apple has struggled to adapt to the switch from PC to mobile. Although the company continues to make a fortune, its heyday in the computer age long go.
Intel Chip Plants Jobs
The new factories are expected to create more than 3,000 high-paying permanent jobs, more than 3,000 construction jobs and around 15,000 long-term local jobs.
The Intel took another hit last year when Apple, also based in California. Intel announced that it relies on its own chips to power its Macs, not Intel.
The Intel has a history of announcements that don’t show up right away. A decade ago, the company announced plans to build a new multi-billion dollar plant in Chandler. While President Barack Obama visited Intel’s Hillsboro, Oregon facility.
The facility, known as the Fab 42, put on hold for years, announced back in 2017 with President Donald Trump. This finally opened at the end of last year.
