EMP Shield plans to invest $1.9 billion to build a computer chip manufacturing plant in Burlington, Kansas. The company, which develops and produces technologies to protect electronic devices from magnetic pulses, also plans to create 1,200 new jobs with an average annual salary of $66,000. The new facility will feature four production lines and generate thousands of chips per week.
In a recent quote, Governor Laura Kelly said, “Bringing economic prosperity to every corner of the state – particularly rural Kansas – has been a priority since my very first day in office. We achieve that with this project, creating thousands of high-paying jobs that don’t require a four-year degree and proving that every Kansas community is ripe for investment and growth.”
