The state-of-the-art facility will develop products critical to the manufacturing of semiconductors in the United States and around the world.
The new campus, which is expected to begin initial commercial operation in early 2025, will be built in phases. The 100,000-square-foot facility to be built in the initial phase will support production for Entegris’ Microcontamination Control (MC) and Advanced Materials Handling (AMH) divisions. When completed, the facility will increase production capabilities for Entegris’ most advanced products for filtration and purification as well as wafer carriers, also known as Front-Opening-Unified Pods (FOUPs).
“The semiconductor manufacturing industry is set to expand in the United States following the passage of the CHIPS and Science Act, and Entegris’ manufacturing center of excellence will enable our organization to play a meaningful role in this important effort,” said Bertrand Loy, Entegris president and CEO. “With our large state-of-the-art facility, we will help shorten the supply chain and more efficiently meet the growing needs of domestic manufacturers. We are pleased to have found an innovative and competitive home in Colorado Springs, and we look forward to building on our 30-year history in the region while enhancing our leadership position in the semiconductor ecosystem.”
Bill Shaner, president, Advanced Materials Handling at Entegris, said: “As we break ground on our new manufacturing center of excellence, we are thrilled to double our presence in Colorado and meaningfully expand our manufacturing footprint in the US.”
