Micron’s 2022 announcement of a massive $15 billion investment to expand its semiconductor manufacturing facility, right here in Boise, will be the first new memory manufacturing fab built in the United States in two decades. This investment is poised to be a historic, once-in-a-generation boon for our capital city, estimated to create more than 17,000 direct and indirect job opportunities over the next decade (2,000 for Micron) while adding to the health of the local economy.
According to Micron, the project is just the first of many similar stateside projects on the horizon, on the heels of the recently passed CHIPS and Science Act, where the new semiconductor facility represents the largest investment ever made in Idaho history. Micron intends to invest a total of $150 billion worldwide over the next 10 years for both manufacturing and research and development efforts, in addition to $40 billion by 2029 to build out leading-edge memory manufacturing facilities in the U.S., according to a Micron press release.
Tiered Business Bidding Begins
As this ambitious undertaking begins to solidify and take shape, Micron is currently soliciting hundreds of bid proposals for the multi-year expansion project. Notably, over 10 percent of the total budget will be allocated to diverse and minority owned business entities, underscoring Micron’s commitment to diversity.
To be eligible as a Tier 1 supplier, businesses must demonstrate their diversity programs and actively engage diverse Tier 2 businesses to fulfill Micron contracts. This emphasis on diversity presents a chance for companies to showcase their commitment to inclusivity and stand out as preferred partners in this venture.
