Intel in Ireland

Ireland is Intel’s centre of manufacturing excellence in Europe. Since 1989, Intel has invested US$7.5 billion turning 360 acres of the Collinstown Industrial Park into the most advanced industrial campus in Europe.

Over 4,500 people work at the Leixlip, Co. Kildare campus and in addition, there are over 200 people employed at Intel Communications Europe located in Shannon, Co. Clare, which is the Ireland product development arm of our Communications Product Group.

The fabs at the Leixlip campus produce 300mm wafers on multiple process technologies and our combined facilities constitute one of Intel's most technologically advanced, high-volume manufacturing sites in the world. These facilities produce leading edge silicon products that power platforms and technology advancements which are essential to the way we learn, live and work today.
