New GlobalFoundries facility to create 1,000 jobs
The semiconductor giant has job openings for technicians and engineers.
Semiconductor manufacturing company GlobalFoundries' (GF) new facility in Singapore is expected to create 1,000 new jobs, including technicians and engineers.
The facility, which broke ground last year, includes a 250,000-square-feet (23,000 square metres) of cleanroom space and new administrative offices.
Recently, its cleanroom space welcomed its first tool, a market-leading etch tool made by Lam Research.
Following today’s first tool-in ceremony, GF will continue adding new tools to the cleanroom over the coming months and is expected to ramp up in 2023.
Once complete, the new facility will have the capacity to manufacture 450,000 wafers (300mm) per year, raising the total capacity of GF’s Singapore site to approximately 1.5 million wafers (300mm) annually.
Given its capacity, GF believes its new facility will be the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing site in Singapore.
“This first phase of our Singapore expansion plan is a tremendous example of strong partnerships driving our industry forward. This first tool moved into our facility was incredible to witness and is a harbinger of more great milestones on the horizon for GF.” CEO Thomas Caulfield said.
