Globalfoundries cut 300 jobs


Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Globalfoundries said that it is cutting 300 jobs there due to a "softening of the current macro-economic climate."

The cuts represent about 4 percent of Globalfoundries' Singapore employee base, the company said. They were announced at the same time as Globalfoundries Inc.said it was embarking on a long-term initiative to expand 300-mm manufacturing capacity in Singapore.


Globalfoundries said it intends to tune the Singapore mix of existing and new process technologies to better serve growth markets and to position Globalfoundries as a partner to companies that need advanced analog, digital, high-voltage and RF functionality. The initial phase of the plan will include a capacity expansion of Fab 7 300-mm facility to be on a trajectory of nearly 1 million wafers per year. The expansion is expected to be completed by the middle of 2014.

"When this initiative is completed, Singapore will provide the widest range of technologies and the best choice for a broad base of semiconductor and integrated device customers," Ajit Manocha, CEO of Globalfoundries, said in a statement.
