2008 Intel Corporate Responsibility Report - Ireland
Extending our technology leadership, we introduced the high- performance, energy-efficient Intel® Core™ i7 processor family. While the global economic climate significantly impacted our fourth-quarter financial results, we generated $10.9 billion in cash from operations in 2008, enabling us to continue to invest in innovation, even during the economic downturn. We continued to work with the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) to effect lasting social and environmental improvements in the global electronics supply chain. Ireland is Intel’s center of manufacturing excellence in Europe. Since 1989, Intel has invested 6 billion turning a former 360-acre stud farm into the most advanced industrial campus in Ireland.
The Leixlip, Co. Kildare site is the most technologically advanced industrial location in Europe and employs approximately 5,000 people. In addition, there are 200 people employed at Intel Communications Europe, located in Shannon, Co. Clare, which is the Ireland product development arm of our Communications Product Group. Our Leixlip campus is the location of four semi-conductor wafer fabrication facilities; Fab 10 and Fab 14, which operate jointly as Ireland Fab Operations, and Fab 24 and Fab 24-2 which operate jointly as Fab 24. These facilities produce latest generation silicon microprocessors on 200mm and 300mm wafers. These microprocessors power platforms and technology advancements which are essential to the way we learn, live and work today.
