It takes 7,000 people to build Intel’s semiconductor factories

News Tech: According to an Associated Press article, Intel is constructing what it calls the “biggest silicon fabrication location on the planet” in Ohio and will require 7,000 workers to complete the project. However, a labour shortage affecting the construction sector may make it difficult for Intel to find the workers it needs for the $20 billion project, and worker competition may slow the pace of local homebuilding, which is required to support the expanding workforce that Intel’s plant is intended to draw.

The 7,000 people needed for Intel’s project won’t be needed all at once, and this number may represent a small portion of the workers needed to construct the complexes that surround Intel’s plants. Included in this is a 500-acre supplier-only business park created by VanTrust Real Estate.

The Ohio project was first announced by Intel in January of this year, and building is scheduled to start in late 2022. Two factories, or fabs, will be built on the 1,000-acre property, and they will eventually employ at least 3,000 people. However, it has long-term ambitions to spend $100 billion on the endeavour, enlarge the site to 2,000 acres, and eventually construct eight fabs instead of just two. It won’t likely start producing chips until 2025.

Now that President Joe Biden has approved the CHIPS and Science Act, which provides semiconductor corporations like Intel with $52 billion in funding, construction on the chip plants is likely to pick up speed. Intel postponed the groundbreaking for the new chip facility in June in an effort to persuade Congress to approve the legislation. The “scope and pace” of Intel’s effort, according to Intel at the time, are dependent on the funding provided by the CHIPS Act.
