Texas Instruments Plans Sherman, Texas, Chip Fabrication Facilities

Semiconductor designer and manufacturer Texas Instruments will locate their next 300-mm fabs fabrication plant in Sherman, Texas. With the option to include up to four fabs, the projects combined could create as many as 3,000 jobs with $30 billion invested over the coming decades.

According to state officials, the new fabrication facilities will manufacture 300-mm semiconductor wafers with construction of the first and second fabs set to begin in 2022. Plans for production from the first facility should begin as early as 2025.

"Our commitment to North Texas spans more than 90 years, and this decision is a testament to our strong partnership and investment in the Sherman community," said TI Chairman, President, and CEO Rich Templeton. "TI’s future analog and embedded processing 300-mm fabs at the Sherman site are part of our long-term capacity planning to continue to strengthen our manufacturing and technology competitive advantage and support our customers’ demand in the coming decades."

TI was founded in Dallas in 1930 and has additional locations in Richardson, Sherman, and Houston. Ranked number 210 on the list of Fortune 500 companies, TI is one of the largest employers in the state and the only semiconductor company headquartered in Texas.

"For more than 90 years, TI has been a member of the powerful 'Made in Texas' brand and we are proud that the company has chosen to continue its legacy of innovation in the Lone Star State," said Governor Greg Abbott. "In addition to bringing billions of dollars in capital investment and thousands of new jobs to North Texas, this historic investment will keep Texas a national leader in semiconductor manufacturing while also strengthening the domestic semiconductor supply chain. I thank TI for choosing Sherman as the site for up to four new semiconductor manufacturing facilities as we work together to keep Texas a global hub for innovation in advanced technology and manufacturing."
