About 300 office staff will move in to the office wing of the new facility, production is still a long way off. The company will start installing production equipment this June, but this tedious process will take quite a while and production is slated to start in July next year. Next month, Globalfoundries will also break ground on a 220,000-square-foot administrative building.
Once completed, the fab will employ more than 1,000 workers, but for the time being it is operating with a skeleton crew of 400 employees, mostly administrative staff and locals. Globalfoundries has already started looking for prospective technicians in nearby universities.
