Texas Instruments just broke ground for its new 300-mm semiconductor wafer fabrication plants in Sherman, Texas. The location will be the largest private-sector economic investment in Texas history. The investment could reach $30 billion and create as many as 3,000 jobs.
Local officials and community leaders attended the historic groundbreaking.
The complex includes plans for four fabrication factories (fabs) that should manufacture tens of millions of analog and embedded processing chips daily. Texas Instruments is committed to responsible, sustainable manufacturing and will design the plants to meet LEED Gold requirements: the highest level rating for structural efficiency and sustainability of the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) building rating system. They will also design to reduce waste, water, and energy consumption.
Production should be ready to begin in 2025.
