The new site will bring an initially estimated 3,000 Intel jobs and tens of thousands more construction jobs and long-term opportunities for the local economy. Intel is also devoting an additional $100 million to partner with local Ohio educational institutions to help mentor and develop local talent and bolster research programs throughout the Midwest region.

Two of Intels key competitors – TSMC and Samsung have also announced plans for chipset plants in the US set in Arizona and Texas.
