Intel confirms plans for new Oregon semiconductor factory


PORTLAND — Intel has acknowledged it will soon start building a massive new semiconductor factory in Hillsboro, Ore.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reported that the company told about 50 residents living near its Ronler Acres campus that it will build a third phase of its massive D1X manufacturing complex, confirming a newspaper report last month. Intel also said it plans a new technology building to support the factory with emergency generators, utilities and additional parking.

Intel was vague on details, including the project’s exact size and timing.
