Intel brings cutting-edge facility to Poland

Intel has selected an area near Wrocław, Poland, as the site of a new cutting-edge semiconductor assembly and test facility. This facility will help meet critical demand for assembly and test capacity that Intel anticipates by 2027. The company expects to invest up to $4.6 billion in the facility, which will have the capacity to expand. 


Intel’s planned investment in Poland will help create a first-of-its-kind end-to-end leading-edge semiconductor manufacturing value chain in Europe. It will also serve as a catalyst for additional ecosystem investments and innovation in Poland and across the European Union.


“Poland is already home to Intel operations and is well positioned to work with Intel sites in Germany and Ireland. It is also very cost-competitive with other manufacturing locations globally and offers a great talent base that we are excited to help to grow. We’re grateful for the support from Poland as we work to grow the local semiconductor ecosystem and contribute to the EU’s goal of creating a more resilient and sustainable semiconductor supply chain.”- Pat Gelsinger, CEO of Intel


Poland was chosen as the location for the new site for several reasons, including its infrastructure, strong talent base and excellent business environment.


Creating jobs

When completed, the semiconductor assembly and test facility in Miękinia will support approximately 2,000 Intel employees. The construction of the facility is also expected to create several thousand more jobs, in addition to eventual hiring by suppliers. Design and planning for the facility will begin immediately, with construction to commence pending European Commission approval.


Poland offers a strong technical talent base and several excellent universities with strong engineering programs. This strong workforce and talent base has been critical to Intel’s 30 years of operation in Poland, including its significant research and development operations in Gdańsk, the company’s largest R&D facility in Europe with nearly 4,000 workers.


Resilient and balanced supply chain

Recent global disruptions show the critical need to build a more resilient supply chain for semiconductors. Intel supports the European Union’s goal to reclaim 20 % of global semiconductor manufacturing capacity by 2030 and is investing in a global semiconductor supply chain that is resilient and geographically balanced. Intel’s investments in Poland and in Europe can act as a catalyst for further investments by ecosystem companies and for building and attracting the talent needed to support a thriving European semiconductor industry.


With environmental standards in mind

Intel is committed to sustainability and will adhere to high environmental standards across its global operations and its European operations, including at the planned facility near Wrocław. This facility will be constructed according to green building principles, minimizing its carbon footprint and impact on the environment.
