The Taiwanese semiconductor factory could bring a new chemical plant to Arizona

The massive Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. plant planned for North Phoenix seems to spark interest in corresponding investments in Arizona.

LCY Chemicals, one of the largest chemical manufacturers for semiconductor manufacturers, is considering building a factory in Arizona to supply Taiwan Semiconductor. This would expand Metro Phoenix’s growing semiconductor core, which also includes Intel, Microchip Technology, ON Semiconductor and NXP Semiconductors.

The prospective dry-cleaning facility would be the largest such facility outside of Taiwan’s society where LCY Chemicals is based, according to one Report from Nikkei Asia.

“We are actively planning this new facility in the US,” CEO Vincent Liu told the Japanese publication and expressed a desire to move the semiconductor supply chain closer to customers for various reasons.
