Fairchild to keep Pennsylvania fab open
Fairchild Semiconductor International Inc. will keep open its semiconductor wafer fab in Mountain Top, Pa., reversing a 2009 decision to close the facility, the company said Tuesday (Nov. 15).
Since the announcing in March 2009 that it would close the fab, Fairchild has more than doubled its sales of the high voltage and automotive products built at the Mountain Top fab, Fairchild said. The company said it expects to continue the rapid expansion of these businesses and determined that retaining the Mountain Top facility would be essential.
