About the Campus

Get to know the Ireland campus

Intel Ireland's Leixlip campus, located in County Kildare, began operations in 1989. Since then, Intel has invested more than €30 billion in turning the 360-acre former stud farm into one of the most technologically advanced manufacturing locations in Europe. This facility is the largest private investment ever made in the history of the Irish State. Today, more than 4,500 people work at the campus in Leixlip.

The Leixlip campus is home to a semiconductor wafer fabrication facility, which is a key location for production of Intel’s 14nm process technology. Ireland is also part of Intel’s global manufacturing site expansion plans. Construction activity began in early 2019 on the multiyear project that will double the available manufacturing space in Ireland. Intel is investing €17 billion in this new fab development which will double the manufacturing capacity available in Ireland and enable the production of Intel 4, the company’s most advanced process technology.

The work that we undertake at the Leixlip campus is world class and unique in terms of its scale and complexity and has had a very significant impact on both the local and national economy in many ways. For example, our economic impact is €2.75 billion annually to the Irish economy.

Since 1996, Intel Ireland has been certified to the International Environmental Management Standard ISO 14001. In 2011 Intel Ireland became the first Intel site globally to be accredited to the International Energy Management Standard ISO 50001, a recognition of international best practice in energy management. Intel Ireland is at the forefront of sustainable plant operations across Intel worldwide, voluntarily investing more than €67 million in energy and water conservation projects at the Leixlip site in recent years.
