X-FAB Expands Lubbock, Texas, Operations

X-FAB Texas, a global leader in the manufacturing of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, plans to expand its operations center in Lubbock, Texas. The $200 million project is expected to create 250 jobs.

The facility produces high-quality wafers with superior performance and reliability for a wide range of applications including automotive, industrial, and medical.

“As the leading silicon carbide foundry, we must continue to invest to grow our capacity, capabilities and technical workforce to provide high-quality products and prepare for future generations of products,” said Lloyd Whetzel, president and CEO of X-FAB Texas. “X-FAB is committed to maintaining the foundry leadership position in silicon carbide.”

As the world's leading foundry group for analog/mixed-signal semiconductor applications, X-FAB creates a clear alternative to typical foundry services by combining solid, specialized expertise in advanced analog and mixed-signal process technologies with excellent service, a high level of responsiveness and first-class technical support.

“For nearly 25 years X-FAB has remained a strong corporate partner in Lubbock’s business community, and today’s announcement further validates Lubbock as a premier destination for manufacturing and distribution both nationally and internationally,” noted John Osborne, president and CEO of Lubbock Economic Development Alliance (LEDA). “As the world leader in silicon carbide foundry production, Lubbock remains an integral location in X-FAB’s global network of production sites, providing the industry with cutting-edge technology. ”
