Fresh off his third State of the Union Address, where he discussed the need for growing manufacturing, President Obama will be touring Intel’s Ocotillo Campus in Chandler, Arizona. The Intel facility in Chandler employs nearly 10,000 people and builds high tech processors. The President is expected to continue to discuss manufacturing and job creation.
Intel is a leading innovator in high-tech manufacturing and is currently expanding their operations in Arizona. The company is building the world’s most advanced, high volume chip fabrication plant in Arizona. The plant is scheduled to be completed in 2013. This is great news for manufacturing in the United States.
Manufacturers are hopeful President Obama will adopt the policies manufacturers have laid out in A Manufacturing Renaissance: Four Goals for Economic Growth. By instituting pro-growth policies companies like Intel will be able to better compete, expand and create good high-paying jobs.
