With $20 billion from Intel, Ohio in mix to become US semiconductor manufacturing cluster

By Mark Williams


Ohio, already a $20 billion winner with Intel's decision to build two factories near Columbus, is in the running to become one of two semiconductor manufacturing clusters being developed as part of the federal CHIPS Act, according to U.S. Commerce Department officials.

"We want to elevate and amplify the great work that's being done here because this is what an emerging semiconductor cluster really looks like," said Ayodele Okeowo, the department's director of intergovernmental affairs who was among several Commerce officials meeting with Ohio government, economic development and educational leaders this week.
