The good thing is that it really will employ locals, because no one in their right mind would move to Ohio.

How many of those are they going to make?  They sound very, very expensive.

Intel? Well, not a shock a second rate chipmaker picks a third rate state to make its fourth rate products

Btw subbs, it was just "we picked a location". No building of any kind has even started

I don't think most people in the country think about Indiana all that often, so I guess Indiana has that going for it.

left OH months ago, was there 7 yrs for Mrs. Swimo's job. the location is quite nice. money area up that way. so glad we're now in SC, the weather is fine.

Make sure you keep a hurricane kit fully stocked and ready at all times. And honestly, anyone on south or east coasts should keep their super important paper stuff in a safe deposit box at a bank 100 miles inland

I mean... you're not wrong about Intel's general shiattiness, but their planned foundry services will likely prove valuable to the global supply chain. One big part of why we have such a dire shortage now is that the bleeding edge companies don't want to invest in new foundries and fabs that pump out old tech. We need all the chips we can get in 10, 14, 20, 32, whatever nm.

https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2022/01/intel-mega-fab-coming-to-ohio-reports-say/

Given the size of the parcel and the facility's rumored price tag, it is likely the site of Intel's "mega-fab," which CEO Pat Gelsinger said would be like "a little city." The mega-fab would contain six to eight modules, he said, and would focus on lithography processes and packaging techniques. Suppliers would have space on the site, too.

The mega-fab would also become a center for training new production engineers. Given the site's proximity to Ohio State University, just 15 miles away, it's likely that the company would partner with the university's electrical engineering department. At the very least, it would provide a nearby source of potential future employees.

So this is going to be THE Intel fab, located near THE Ohio State University.

I worked for a large healthcare firm that was being bought out by another.  The department I was in, Construction Management, was going to survive the merger.  The issue was we'd all have to move from DC to Ohio.  Yeah we all refreshed our resumes.

I don't see where that happened.

Don't forget this stuff needs water, a decent electrical grid, transportation, and a semi-stable climate.  So Ohio starts looking good for all that.

My joke to friends back in Ohio was that the owners of Conn's Potato Chips fell out of their chairs upon reading this news.

Conn's are an underrated chip (from my hometown).

So Intel, who is on a downward slide, is going to build a fab in a no-tech state for tax subsidies. Maybe someone should take a look at how their fab is doing in the Philippines, given that country had identical technical capability and infrastructure.

It won't be up for a few years, so that will give Intel enough time to perfect 25nm technology.

3,000 is a pipe dream. If this plant is built it will employ 100, tops.

What you just mentioned is definitely one of the things that Central Ohio is in a prime location to be able to provide. With Ohio State being nearby it would be a wise move to introduce some sort of college partnership training program to bring employees up to a higher level of technical competency. I live in the Cleveland area and if there was a high-speed rail option I would seriously consider making that commute.

Actually there is a hell of a lot more technology and Technology confidence in Ohio then you are giving credit. This isn't some Backwoods West Virginia coal mining area where all they know is digging up pieces of dirt that catch fire.

We have some of the best secondary education programs in the world and the more stringent licensing procedures, which is why most people who want to get an education in education tend to drift towards Ohio for the best one. We have quite possibly one of the most concentrated medical technology and medical research areas along the North Shore and between Kent State and Ohio State University, more technological innovation has come from those two institutions then most snarky internet know-it-alls would ever want to admit.

Our problem (of manu, but i feel this is the big one) is that because we are considered a flyover State nobody wants to invest the money in this fantastic potential and it goes wasted, many of the students graduating these schools move out of state in order to pursue high Tech careers.

Start investing technology production facilities in this area and the ROI for all parties involved will be much higher than people assume.

Also, Amazon, Facebook, and JPMorganChase all have sizeable data centers around Columbus. Iron Mountain has a data center in Dayton. Peloton is building a multi-billion industrial complex just south of Toledo. OnBase is made by Hyland Software in Westlake, just outside Cleveland. Progressive Insurance, which hires a lot of technical talent, is based in Mayfield, just southeast of Cleveland. Ohio has a lot of technical talent and resources, plus a cost of living that doesn't range from OMG to WTF, and little threat of natural disasters from floods, earthquakes, mudslides, or wildfires.

True, the only time there is a seismic event around here is when the Browns managed to end the season on a good note and all the fans fall out of their chairs in disbelief.

I should also mention that the national parks do we have her some of the finest in the nation, I just wish more of them would allow for more hiking and camping options.

Holy crap I hate the autocorrect on my phone. I actually took the time to proofread this one and none of my corrections took. Figure it out phonetically.

Good luck finding workers. Ohio is full of ignorant meth-head poor whites. And to bring people in from out of state they'll have to pay silicon-valley equivalent salary to get people to leave. Countdown to mass application for H1b foreign workers in 5...4...3.......
