The city of Taylor in Texas was chosen for the new factory based on a number of considerations, including its proximity to Samsung’s current manufacturing location in Austin, the local semiconductor ecosystem, and government backing, according to the company. Along with Samsung’s latest new production line in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, the Taylor site will cover more than 5 million square meters and is projected to serve as a significant hub for the company’s global semiconductor manufacturing capacity. Samsung’s announcement comes at a time when President Joe Biden is promoting semiconductor manufacturing and research in the United States. Despite the fact that the current global scarcity of computer chips is mostly due to the pandemic’s impact, as well as harsh weather occurrences that have impeded manufacturing and other factors, the United States has been lagging behind other producers for years.
