IonQ has decided to open a quantum computing manufacturing plant in Seattle, Washington, the first of its kind in the United States. The 65,000-square-foot facility, which will support IonQ’s manufacturing and R&D departments, is part of the company’s larger initiative to invest $1 billion throughout the Pacific Northwest over the next decade.

In a recent quote, Peter Chapman, CEO and President of IonQ, said, “Advanced technologies like quantum computing are key to solving some of the world’s most pressing challenges such as climate change, energy, and transportation. The Seattle region has been a hub of tech innovation and manufacturing for decades, and has the skilled workforce we need to design, build and manufacture our quantum computers. As we planned our expansion, the Seattle area was an ideal option for our new facility. We’re excited to be among the other innovative companies who call Seattle home, many of which are IonQ partners and customers.”
