Amkor Technology Plans Peoria, Arizona, Advanced Packaging-Test Facility
The new manufacturing campus will be located on 55 acres and provide high volume, leading-edge technologies for advanced packaging and testing of semiconductors to support critical markets such as high-performance computing, automotive, and communications. Production is scheduled for the next two to three years.
"Expansion of a US semiconductor supply chain is underway, and as the largest US-headquartered advanced packaging company, we are excited to lead the charge in bolstering America’s advanced packaging capabilities," said Giel Rutten, Amkor’s President and CEO. “Semiconductor companies, foundries, and other supply chain partners understand the need to strategically broaden their geographic footprint. The announcement of our new advanced packaging and test facility in Arizona is a clear signal of our intent to help our customers ensure resilient supply chains and be a part of a strong American semiconductor ecosystem.”
The facility will package and test chips produced for Apple at the nearby TSMC fab. Amkor has applied for CHIPS funding to support the project.
“Amkor’s announcement is a historic step forward for Arizona that will bolster America’s national security and build a more resilient supply chain, bring billions of dollars into our state, and create thousands of good-paying jobs for Arizona workers,” noted Governor Katie Hobbs. “With this project, one of the most significant investments in advanced packaging in America, Arizona will solidify itself as a world leader in the semiconductor industry. I was glad to meet with the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA) and Amkor leadership in South Korea to discuss future investments in Arizona and am proud to have them as a partner. Together, we’ll continue to expand the semiconductor ecosystem and continue Arizona’s long history of leadership in the advanced manufacturing sector.”
