Chooses Arizona for New Factory

Apple's processor manufacturing partner TSMC has officially announced that it will open an advanced semiconductor fabrication plant in Arizona, with the first batch of chips expected in 2024.

"We're incredibly proud that one of the world's leading technology companies has chosen Arizona for this high-tech project, one with national and global significance", said Governor Ducey. The chips it makes can be used in high-end defense and communications devices.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross discusses efforts to convince American companies to bring manufacturing back to the U.S.

TSMC stated that the plan was to build the plant over nine years.

It comes as President Donald Trump has stepped up criticism of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) trade practices and Beijing's handling of the outbreak of the CCP virus, the novel coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan and causes COVID-19.

The move comes as President Donald Trump's administration has been reportedly pressuring the company to increase its production in the us for months. This new US facility will enable TSMC to provide enhanced service to customers and partners and increase its ability to attract global talent.

Headquartered in Hsinchu, TSMC manufactures chip components for semiconductor firms around the world.

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has further threatened a supply-chain disruption to the US, as a majority of advanced chipmaking is done in Asia, especially Taiwan and South Korea.

"Remaining the leader in this industry will be critical to future economic and military competitiveness", he told the publication.
