The completion of the high-volume factory, known as Fab 42, will take three to four years and create 3,000 high-tech, high-wage Intel jobs for process engineers, equipment technicians and facilities support engineers and technicians.
Fab 42 is expected to create more than 10,000 long-term jobs in Arizona combined with the indirect impact on businesses that will support the factory’s operations, according to Intel.
