On April 15, 2024, the Biden administration announced funding for Samsung to expand its chip manufacturing facility located in Taylor, North Austin. This strategic move strengthens the U.S. chip industry and bolsters the nation’s technological infrastructure.

As the world’s second-largest chip manufacturer, Samsung is making a significant commitment to its U.S. operations by increasing its total investment to $44 billion—more than double its current investment scale. This demonstrates Samsung’s dedication to furthering innovation and growth in the region.

The new 600-acre facility began construction in January 2022 and is expected to be operational later this year. So far, Samsung’s semiconductor factory has contributed $26.8 billion in economic benefits to the Austin area. This state-of-the-art semiconductor ecosystem will create 21,500 jobs and use up to $40 million in CHIPS funding to train and develop the local workforce.

This substantial investment in Austin’s chip manufacturing industry represents one of the few areas of agreement between Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott and the Biden administration. The partnership exemplifies the potential for collaborative efforts to advance critical industries and drive progress.
