COLUMBUS – State Representative Brian Stewart (R-Ashville) issued the following statement following the announcement of Intel’s plan to invest $20 billion for a new semiconductor plant in Licking County:

“I’m thrilled to see Intel making this historic investment in Ohio. The construction of Intel’s new plant will not only create thousands of jobs across our state, but will serve as an investment in Ohio’s economy for years to come. The state operating budget we passed earlier this General Assembly boosted incentives for ‘megaprojects’ such as this, and I’m proud to be a part of a legislature that was able to create real change in our state’s economy. I’m grateful for the opportunities to come, and I look forward to seeing the positive impact Intel will have for the people of Ohio.”

Intel is an American manufacturer of semiconductor computer chips headquartered in Santa Clara, California. The plan is to invest up to $100 billion over potentially four phases to build the world’s largest chip-manufacturing plant.

The first phase, announced today, calls for a $20 billion investment for the construction of two plants in Jersey Township in Licking County. The plants will directly create 3,000 new jobs, with up to 10,000 indirect jobs.
