Virginia   1,100 new jobs will be created

Micron Technology will invest $3 billion to increase memory production at its operation in the City of Manassas, creating 1,100 new jobs by 2030.

Virginia successfully secured Micron’s commitment after the company considered multiple other locations around the world.

The expansion will position the Manassas site as Micron’s Center of Excellence for long-lifecycle memory and will cement the company’s position as one of Virginia’s largest exporters, as it is expected to increase exports from the Commonwealth by more than $1 billion annually after completion.

As part of the expansion, Micron will establish a global research and development center in Manassas for memory and storage solutions primarily focused on the automotive, industrial and networking markets.

The research and development center will include laboratories, test equipment and approximately 100 product engineers focused on applications such as unmanned and autonomous automotive systems, the IoT (Internet of Things), and other industrial and networking applications.

Additionally, the company announced that the Micron Foundation, the company’s philanthropic organization, will commit $1 million toward growing the next generation of scientists, engineers and technicians at several Virginia universities and community colleges.
