Intel Images: Intel Celebrates 40 Years in Rio Rancho
Intel New Mexico is home to 1,800 employees and Fab 11X, Intel’s first 300-millimeter fabrication plant.
Intel moved into the Enchantment state when it planted Fab 7 on a former Rio Rancho sod farm in 1980. Since then, Intel has invested more than $16 billion in New Mexico and grown to be its largest industrial employer.
A video from Intel’s internal communications team tells the story of the first Intel site to host a sitting U.S. president, Fab 11X’s diverse portfolio of products and the lucky few who soar high above the 218-acre site in their spare time.
