Michigan Drives Global Semiconductor Superiority
As global demands continue to grow and evolve across every phase of the semiconductor process, Michigan is shepherding in the new guard for the industry. Team Michigan has identified the areas of the CHIPs application that require direct state input (e.g., workforce development, technical feasibility) and is prepared to quickly provide information needed to complete a successful CHIPS application. If your business is seeking CHIPs funding or needs assistace with their application, MEDC can help.
Michigan's leadership in the semicondctor industry was showcased in August 2022 when President Biden joined Governor Whitmer and representatives from Hemlock remotely for the signing of an executive directive guiding the implementation of the CHIPS Act, which aims to boost domestic chip production and semiconductor manufacturing in the United States.
Continuing this leadership, MEDC is availavble to help Michigan businesses prepare to apply for availalble incentives that are part of the CHIPS act.
Separated into different categories, CHIPS act incentives include:
Michigan's Semiconductor Ecosystem
Home to the largest producer of polysilicon in the U.S., a top 10 semiconductor workforce, the nation's top global institute for semiconductor training, and a strong customer base to support future growth, Michigan is a global innovation hub for the semiconductor industry.
TOP SEMICONDUCTOR COMPANIES IN MICHIGAN
Michigan’s ability to support the semiconductor industry extends from its deep knowledge as a customer of the sector, as the global epicenter of the automotive industry. The state is home to nearly one-fifth of U.S. auto production—more than any other state in the nation—and has the greatest concentration of OEMs in the country, with 26 having headquarters or technology centers in the state.
Add to that, Michigan’s automotive industry purchased nearly $35 million in products and services from semiconductor companies in Michigan in 2020 alone, building on the state’s leadership in semiconductor R&D and testing due in large part to the state’s talent and processes supported by Hemlock Semiconductor, KLA and the University of Michigan, which is the top global institute for semiconductor training.
Did you Know?
When we announced KLA's plans for bringing our second north American headquarters to Michigan, we knew it was going to be an exceptional place to expand our R&D programs and develop a new AI center of excellence. Demands for innovations in semiconductors continue to increase as we see technologies like 5G and AI proliferate. We are pleased with our progress with more than 200 new hires at the Michigan site, even with the challenges of COVID in 2020. We are excited about our long-term growth plans.
The growth of electric vehicles is opening an exciting new chapter for the auto industry as it provides consumers with more environmentally friendly transportation options. SK Siltron CSS is proud to partner with the state of Michigan to build the supply chain and create the skilled jobs required to support the next generation of EVs, ensuring Michigan remains the automotive center of the world.
