Intel picks Greater Columbus for $20 billion semiconductor factory to employ 3,000 workers

Intel has picked Greater Columbus for a new factory that could spark a new industry for the state.

The Silicon Valley semiconductor maker plans to invest $20 billion in a Licking County site that will employ 3,000 workers, a source close to the project told The Dispatch.

The site also will employ thousands of construction workers along with workers from Intel suppliers that will locate at the site as well, the source said.

State and local officials, along with those from the state's economic development agency JobsOhio, have officially declined to comment, but rumors have been rampant for months of a massive economic development project that could include a computer-chip factory coming to 3,190 acres the city of New Albany is annexing from Jersey Township in western Licking County.

1. That region has become a real hotspot

I have watched economic development over the past decade skyrocket like nothing Iíve ever seen. This Intel venture will put it over the moon.
