Analog Devices expands to Ireland
New England Council member, Analog Devices (ADI) plans to build a $684m research, development, and manufacturing facility in Limerick, Ireland. This is done with the goal of developing next-generation signal processing innovations for various sectors, including healthcare and automotive.
The 45,000-square-foot facility is expected to support 600 new jobs and triple ADI’s European wafer production capacity. It will also aid in doubling ADI’s internal manufacturing capacity, and in turn, better its global supply chain and customer service.
“Since 1976, Ireland has been a critical innovation center for ADI, thanks to its strong academic and research organizations, business ecosystem, and progressive government leadership,” said ADI CEO and Chair Vincent Roche in a statement. “This next-generation semiconductor manufacturing facility and expanded R&D team will further extend ADI Limerick’s global influence. Through organic R&D and close collaboration with our customers and ecosystem partners, we are striving to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges and enable a more efficient, safer, and sustainable future.”
The New England Council would like to congratulate Analog Devices for this expansion.
