Preparing the Leixlip campus to support Intel’s Global Manufacturing Network

By Eamonn Sinnott

In December Ann Kelleher issued a global update on how we are preparing our Manufacturing Network to support Intel’s expanding business, including our plans to develop our manufacturing capabilities.

Following on from that update, this week Intel Ireland submitted an application to Kildare County Council for an extension and revision to a planning permission which was granted to us in October 2017. The permission granted in 2017 relates to development of manufacturing space and support buildings on the west-side of our Leixlip campus.

This application for extension and revision, if granted, will enable further development of the west-side of our Leixlip campus in addition to what is currently permitted.

As you may be aware we recently began early phase of site enablement works for manufacturing site expansion in Leixlip. These enabling works are being undertaken within the scope of the planning permission granted to us in 2017. In the weeks and months ahead, we will be actively engaging with our key stakeholders and the broader community.

It is important to note that the site expansion, and related investment, is expected to entail multi-year construction activities that will be taken in stages. As always, these stages are subject to change based on business, economic and other factors.

Eamonn Sinnott is the General Manager of Intel Ireland and Vice President, Technology and Manufacturing Group at Intel Corporation.
