Micron Technology to set up in Jalisco

GUADALAJARA, JAL - Semiconductor manufacturer Micron Technology announced plans to establish a new engineering and operations center in Guadalajara, Jalisco, as part of its global expansion strategy.

The center will be dedicated to product development for Micron's memory solutions and information technology operations. More than 100 staff members are expected to be hired by the end of the year.

"We are confident that our presence in Mexico will enhance our ability to deliver leading-edge solutions to our customers, contributing to our growth and industry leadership," said Scott DeBoer, Micron's executive vice president of technology and products.

The expansion into Mexico is part of the U.S. company's strategy to expand its access to the global engineering talent required to develop the next-generation products needed to meet the demands driven by artificial intelligence (AI).

However, Micron pointed out that plans for its engineering and operations center in Mexico are dependent on government support.

"Given Mexico's proximity to our U.S. operations and similar time zones, our new engineering and operations center will create strong opportunities for closer collaboration with teams across North America," said April Arnzen, Micron's executive vice president and chief people officer.
