Semiconductor Manufacturer Expanding Idaho Facility

Nov. 5, 2010
Investment will secure current jobs and lead to additional hiring, company says.

ON Semiconductor, a Phoenix-based supplier of silicon devices for energy-efficient electronics, plans to install an additional $15.7 million of production equipment in its 8-inch Pocatello, Idaho, wafer manufacturing facility during the next six months.

In June, the company announced an $11 million equipment expansion as well.

"This second capital investment further secures current jobs at the Pocatello facility, will lead to additional hiring and is an indicator of ON Semiconductor's commitment to its operations here in Pocatello," said John Spicer, ON Semiconductor's Pocatello site manager. "I want to thank Idaho Gov. Butch Otter, the Bannock County Board of Commissioners and the city of Pocatello for working with us in support of this expansion."

The Pocatello facility, which employs 635 people, houses ON Semiconductor's Fab 10, an 8-inch wafer production facility specializing in the manufacture of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and standard products for the automotive, medical, industrial and military/aerospace markets.
