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 $15 billion in turning the 360-acre former stud farm into one of the most technologically advanced manufacturing locations in Europe. This 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, in recent years, has undergone an upgrade project thathas enabled the site to be a key location for production of Intel’s 14nm process technology. The leading edge silicon microprocessors which are manufactured in Ireland are at the heart of a variety of platforms and technology advancements which are essential to the way we learn, live, and work today.

Since 1996, Intel Ireland have been certified to the International Environmental Management Standard ISO 14001. In 2011 Intel Ireland became the first Intel site globally to be accreddited to the International Energy Management Sttandard ISO 5001, a recognition of international best practise is energy management. Intel Ireland is at the forefront of sustainable plant operations across Intel worldwide, voluntarily investing more than €49 million in energy conservation projects at the Leixlip site in recent years.

People at Work

The fabs at the Leixlip campus produce 300mm wafers on multiple process technologies and our combined facilities constitute one of Intel's most technologically advanced, high-volume manufacturing sites in the world. These facilities produce leading edge silicon products that power platforms and technology advancements which are essential to the way we learn, live and work today

Operational Controls

On-site support systems help to ensure the proper operation of Intel Irelands manufacturing equipment and required environmental conditions.

Intel in the Community

Intel believes in being an asset to the community and the Intel Involved program gives our employees the chance to give something back to the communities in which they work. Through the programme, they can volunteer to help with a wide range of projects. In the past these have included teaching people how to use computer applications, environmental conservation, painting and refurbishing community buildings, assisting with youth and senior citizen groups and helping local charities. On average 40% of Intel employees volunteer their time in their communities

Unique Features

The Intel Ireland site has some very unique features, for example we have a listed building, a 300 year old orchard, a special area of conservation and the River Rye home to salmon and trout
