Entegris, Inc. has broken ground on a new manufacturing facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The plant will be used to develop products used in the semiconductor manufacturing industry. The new 100,000-square-foot facility is expected to be operational in 2025 and will support production for Entegris’ Microcontamination Control (MC) and Advanced Materials Handling (AMH) divisions. The plant will also help the company produce products for filtration and purification as well as wafer carriers. Entegris will invest $600 million into the project over the course of several years, generating 600 new jobs in the process. 

In a recent quote, Entegris President and Chief Executive Officer Bertrand Loy said, “The start of construction of our new world-class facility in Colorado Springs represents an important milestone for Entegris. The semiconductor manufacturing industry is set to expand in the United States following the passage of the CHIPS and Science Act, and Entegris’ manufacturing center of excellence will enable our organization to play a meaningful role in this important effort. With our large state-of-the-art facility, we will help shorten the supply chain and more efficiently meet the growing needs of domestic manufacturers. We are pleased to have found an innovative and competitive home in Colorado Springs, and we look forward to building on our 30-year history in the region while enhancing our leadership position in the semiconductor ecosystem.”
