Integra Technologies Plans Wichita, Kansas, Semiconductor Plant
The 1-million-square-foot headquarters and production facility will address recent risks identified in the U.S. semiconductor supply chain and support the domestic semiconductor ecosystem.
“The semiconductors we work on are in multiple space applications, such as the Mars Rover and Hubble Telescope; more than 100 Department of Defense programs of record; as well as commercial applications that power everyday life,” Integra Technologies President and CEO Brett Robinson said. “On behalf of our employee-owners, we are especially grateful for Governor Kelly, Lt. Governor Toland, and Kansas legislative leadership on the State Finance Council for supporting Integra with its premier economic development program, positioning us to transform domestic Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test services while expanding in our home state.”
Integra has been approved as the 2023 recipient of Attracting Powerful Economic Expansion (APEX) incentives, paving the way for the company to apply to the U.S. Department of Commerce for CHIPS and Science Act funding.
“Kansas is doubling down on its commitment to be at the forefront of this emerging and innovative industry,” Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Commerce David Toland noted. “Integra’s plans matched perfectly with the state’s push to diversify our economy and we couldn’t be happier they chose to make this investment right in their backyard.”
Integra Technologies is a global leader in sourcing, ic packaging, semiconductor testing, wafer dies, flip chip bonding and packaging. The company focuses on highly specialized, mission-critical semiconductor components and related value-added services for high-reliability (Hi-Rel) applications where dependability and failure-free performance are of paramount importance.
"This catalytic opportunity is especially exciting because it provides for a local, proven, employee-owned company to increase our nation's competitiveness and security," added Greater Wichita Partnership President Jeff Fluhr. "It also continues to strengthen and build depth in the Wichita region's leadership in advanced manufacturing, including in semiconductors, while providing training and development opportunities for the vast expertise our talent has in this area."
