Integra to invest $1.8 billion into Kansas expansion project

Feb. 9, 2023
If approved, the expansion would take five years, create 2,000 new jobs, and result in a one-million-square-foot production plant.

Integra Technologies Inc., an outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) company, plans to invest $1.8 billion into its Kansas facility. The state has approved Integra’s attracting powerful economic expansion (APEX) incentive application, but the deal is contingent on federal funding from the CHIPS for America program. If approved, the expansion would take five years, create 2,000 new jobs, and result in a one-million-square-foot production plant.

In a recent quote, Governor Laura Kelly said, “Kansas is stepping up to help resolve a national security crisis by playing a key role in reshoring semiconductor production. Our deliberate efforts to diversify the state economy since my administration began four years ago has prepared us for this moment. Partnering with Integra will secure Kansas’ rightful position as a global leader in the semiconductor sector.”

U.S. Senator Jerry Moran added, “Integra’s decision to expand its Wichita operations for its largest semiconductor project to date is a testament to the talented workforce in Kansas and the importance of ensuring a reliable U.S. supply of microchips. I supported the CHIPS and Science Act because semiconductors are critical to our national and economic security, and now Kansas has a leading role in making certain our nation is able to produce its own semiconductors.”
