Founded in 1968, Intel is a global leader in chip manufacture, supplying microprocessors for computer system manufacturers such as Lenovo, HP, Acer, and Dell. It also manufactures motherboard chipsets, network interface controllers and integrated circuits, embedded processors, and other devices related to communications and computing. Intel has 15 wafer manufacturing fabs in production, primarily in the US, but with locations in Ireland, Israel and China. Intel’s integrated device manufacturer (IDM 2.0) strategy involves substantial manufacturing expansion plans, which began with investment into fabs in Arizona and New Mexico, and continues with plans to construct two leading-edge chip factories in Licking County, Ohio. The company has also selected Magdeburg, Germany as the site for two new chip mega factories.
