Semiconductor chip manufacturing giant Intel Corp. announced plans Friday to build a massive chip manufacturing complex in Licking County, Ohio, just east of Columbus.
Ohio officials say it’s the largest economic development project in the state’s history. The Santa Clara, California-based company is planning a more than $20 billion initial investment with more than 3,000 jobs. The total investment could grow to $100 billion at full buildout.
And yet, it almost happened in Wisconsin, according to local economic development officials.
