Fab Manager Joe Bolger and members of our Fab 34 Team receive prestigious AMCHAM Global Impact Award 

Intel is delighted to announce that it has been awarded the American Chamber’s Global Impact Award at the US-Ireland Business Awards ceremony held on Friday, May 24th. This accolade recognizes the significant positive impact that Fab 34, Intel’s newest manufacturing facility, has made on global markets and society through its innovations and sustainable practices.

The award underscores Intel's commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology and fostering international collaboration, as demonstrated by the groundbreaking Fab 34 facility. Opened in September 2023 in Leixlip, Co. Kildare, Fab 34 is at the forefront of semiconductor innovation. As Europe's first high-volume semiconductor manufacturer utilizing extreme ultraviolet lithography, it marks a significant leap forward in the industry.

Fab 34 manufactures Intel 4, Meteor Lake, and is preparing to manufacture Intel 3, Granite Rapids, Intel’s most advanced and efficient products to meet the demands of artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, and cloud computing applications. Since its opening, the facility has doubled the manufacturing production space at the Leixlip campus and has had a positive impact on a global scale in terms of investment, people, and sustainability.

"We are deeply honoured to accept the AmCham Global Impact Award on behalf of Intel and the extraordinary team behind Fab 34. This accolade is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and commitment that brought our state-of-the-art facility to life—a facility that not only stands as a beacon of innovation but also as a symbol of the enduring partnership between the United States and Ireland.
