SAN JOSE, Calif. - A battle is brewing over the control of a technology park where GlobalFoundries Inc. is building a 300-mm fab in New York state.
As reported, amid concerns over infrastructure delays, a New York state agency plans to take over a technology park that houses the new 300-mm fab owned by U.S. silicon foundry upstart GlobalFoundries.
GlobalFoundries is building a new 300-mm fab in upstate New York. The fab, located in Saratoga County, has run into infrastructure delays, reportedly including a secondary access road as well the gas and power lines, according to reports.
The park has been run by the Luther Forest Technology Campus Economic Development Corp., which has experienced some problems.
However, according to The Saratogian, the Luther Forest chief has rejected state takeover of the park. That can be read here.
