Entegris Establishes Colorado Springs, Colorado, Operations
The investment will enhance the company’s ability to meet the needs of its customers as the semiconductor manufacturing industry continues its expansion in the U.S., according to company officials. The new facility will initially support production for Entegris’ Microcontamination Control and Advanced Materials Handling divisions, which develop critical products used to manufacture semiconductors. Commercial operations are scheduled for mid-2024.
“Our new U.S. manufacturing center of excellence has the potential to create approximately 600 new jobs over several years, doubling Entegris’ presence in Colorado, with the potential to continue to expand over time,” said Bertrand Loy, Entegris’ president and CEO. “As a strategic supplier to the semiconductor industry, we recognize that it is more important than ever to invest in the U.S. to maintain and expand the nation’s technology leadership across the semiconductor ecosystem. This investment is a transformational step towards addressing the industry’s long-term capacity constraints while building additional supply chain efficiency and resiliency.”
The project will be supported by state and local incentives. Incentives awarded from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade are subject to regulatory approval. The company will evaluate potential opportunities to further expand based on additional sources of funding, including potential federal funding from the implementation of the CHIPS and Science Act.
“Our administration has worked to expand Colorado’s technology and advanced manufacturing industries and to create an economy where we foster innovation. We are thrilled Entegris has chosen Colorado Springs for their expansion which will create up to 600 new jobs. Colorado Springs is a great place to live, work and do business, and our state is excited to welcome companies that share our values of community and workforce development and sustainability,” noted Jared Polis, Governor of Colorado.
Billerica, Massachusetts-based Entegris, Inc. is an American provider of products and systems that purify, protect, and transport critical materials used in the semiconductor device fabrication process.
“We were happy to lead this effort with our numerous partners to show we were the right choice for this substantial investment. Entegris’ new U.S. manufacturing center of excellence will bolster their supply chain optimization while diversifying our economy and creating great jobs for the talented workforce in our region,” added Johnna Reeder Kleymeyer, president & CEO, Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Corporation.
