Read in the Casa Grande Dispatch the other day that Intel is investing 5 Billion dollars to build the worlds most advanced memory chip fabrication plant here in Chandler Arizona. This plant is scheduled to be completed in 2013 and will bring thousands of jobs in both construction and manufacturing/engineering. This is good news for the Arizona community and Intel has a long history with building facilities in Arizona due to the weather, and tax incentives the state provides.
What is interesting is the sophistication level of the plant which will churn out chips designed for technologies 4+ years from now and one can only imagine how small and compact memory chips will become and the types of fabrication methods employed at building them.
So as an Arizona resident I am certainly happy that Intel has chosen Arizona as the destination for its next memory chip manufacturing plant this will certainly help the local economy for years to come as not only do those people get employed but eat, buy homes, shop and spend money in the local economy.
Chandler is also a beautiful place to live and is located close enough to Tempe, Phoenix and other major destinations so that you are just a quick drive away from just about any activity or major restaurant you could want!
