Intel’s $3.5 billion expansion in New Mexico, announced in 2021, will enable the manufacturing of cutting-edge semiconductor packaging technologies at the site. This significant investment is expected to create at least 700 high-tech Intel jobs, 1,000 construction jobs and support an additional 3,500 jobs in the state. This hiring initiative supports our ongoing investment efforts, made possible with support from the CHIPS and Science Act.
