The Intel economic impact report
From humble beginnings in a used-car dealership, to one of the most advanced technology facilities in the world
Eamonn Sinnott, general manager, Intel Ireland
The story of Intel in Ireland since we first made the decision to invest here in 1989 has been nothing short of remarkable. From humble beginnings in a used-car dealership, to today, where the Leixlip campus is one of the most advanced technology facilities in the world, playing an integral role in the delivery of Intel's 14nm technology. It is a facility that now also represents the largest industrial investment in the history of the Irish State, with the cumulative capital invested in Ireland since 1989, at $13.9 billion.
To help illustrate the story of Intel in Ireland we commissioned Price Waterhouse Coopers to complete a detailed report of the economic impact of Intel in Ireland since 1989. The illustration, below, is a snapshot of the results of that research.
Economic benefits to Ireland derive from both the operational and capital expenditure of Intel since 1989 and the economic analysis has also provided us with the opportunity to look back on contributions in areas such as education and community, which are also reflected in the summary data.
The story of Intel in Ireland is one which has been contributed to by so many and we would like to take the opportunity to extend sincere appreciation to the numerous stakeholders who have played an integral role in enabling an environment in which Intel could prosper.
Most of all, we are very proud of the people at Intel Ireland, who have made all of this possible. These people are courageous, capable, and flexible and the impact captured within this report is a reflection of their ongoing commitment, to come to work every day with the sole desire of being world class at what they do.
