Micron set to build $15 billion chip facility in Boise

MICRON PRESS RELEASE

Micron Technology, Inc., one of the world’s largest semiconductor companies and the only U.S.-based manufacturer of memory, today announced plans to invest approximately $15 billion through the end of the decade to construct a new fab for leading-edge memory manufacturing in Boise.

This will be the first new memory manufacturing fab built in the U.S. in 20 years, ensuring domestic supply of leading-edge memory required for market segments like automotive and data center, fueled by accelerating adoption of artificial intelligence and 5G.

With the anticipated federal grants and credits made possible through the CHIPS and Science Act as well as the incentives provided by the state of Idaho and the support of the governor, the new fab will create over 17,000 new American jobs, including approximately 2,000 direct Micron jobs, by the end of the decade.

Today’s announcement is part of Micron’s intention to invest more than $150 billion globally over the next decade in manufacturing and R&D, including plans to invest $40 billion through the end of this decade to build leading-edge memory manufacturing in multiple phases in the U.S., in line with long-term industry demand trends.
