Intel Israel commenced operations in 1974 and is a development and manufacturing center of Intel Corporation. As a leading technology company in Israel and in the world, Intel develops and manufactures integrated and connected digital technology and computing platforms. Although Intel is known primarily for development of semiconductors, we do a lot more than this. In recent years, we have evolved from a company that served primarily the personal computing industry to become a company that drives the largest data centers in the world, connecting millions of mobile installations and Internet of Things devices, as well as providing information systems protection for organizations and governments.

In Israel, our activity is in two main fields: Development and manufacturing. Israel is home to the largest development center of Intel in the world and our contribution to the Intel’s global technology development is significant. For example, the 7th and 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processors were developed mainly in Israel. Our factory (FAB) in Israel is one of the most advanced and highest quality among Intel factories around the world.
As one of the leading companies in the Israeli market, we are committed to contribute to local economic development. We do this through the 12,800 people we employ in five centers in Israel, through our significant procurement of products and services from local suppliers and through exports of around $ 3.6 billion in 2018, representing 7.5% of hi-tech exports in Israel.
Beyond our business activity, we have led a national initiative to advance science and technology education at an investment of NIS 20 million in the past four years. At the heart of this initiative is our 5*2 project that encourages high school students to opt for the highest level of math matriculation – five units. Around 6,000 Intel Israel employees volunteer in this educational program and other community activities.
The way we do business is equally as important as our business results. Intel Israel integrates corporate responsibility and sustainability in its business strategy and partners with other companies, local authorities, institutions, government offices, and many social organizations in order to support economic growth and a more just society in Israel. We work according to our ethical standards and values which are embedded in all aspects of our activity. Also, Intel Israel has participated in the annual Maala Social Responsibility Ranking since 2006, and in 2018, we again achieved the highest possible ranking, Platinum Plus.
