On 16 June 2023, Intel Corporation announced the construction of a Semiconductor Integration and Testing Plant in Miękinia. The Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH) and Industrial Development Agency JSC (IDA JSC), in cooperation with the Ministry of Digitalisation and the Legnica Special Economic Zone, were responsible for the substantive handling of the preparatory phase of the investment.

IDA JSC and PAIH, supported by the Ministry of Digitalisation, were involved in securing the Intel project for Poland from 2021. Poland competed with several other countries for the investment location. The companies, together with the Ministry of Digitalisation, jointly assisted the American company at every stage of the preparatory work for the investment and, in cooperation with the Legnica SEZ, took part in the preparation of the offer and presentation of the investment area.

Intel's Semiconductor Integration and Testing Facility is one of the largest high-tech investments in this region of Europe. The choice of American investors fell on Miękinia near Wrocław. Decisive factors were the infrastructural facilities and the proximity of an academic centre with a strong technical university. In production alone, the plant may employ over 2,000 workers, mainly highly qualified specialists and engineers.

In order to ensure optimal conditions for the operation of the investment, IDA JSC intends to further deepen its cooperation with the Legnica SEZ. The first task is to adequately prepare the plot for the investment - both for Intel and for its cooperators.

Intel is one of the world's leading manufacturers in the semiconductor industry. Processors, which are created using technology native to Silicon Valley, are indispensable in production for all sectors of the electronics industry - from basic household appliances to the most advanced computers. Intel Corporation has been operating in Poland for many years. It carries out research and development work in Gdansk, where it has the largest centre of its kind in Europe, employing nearly 4,000 people.

Industrial Development Agency JSC has extensive experience in working with major foreign investors. The company manages the largest industrial park in Poland, where Europe's largest electric car battery production plant from LG Energy Solutions operates. More than 10,000 employees work in the companies of the Kobierzyce industrial park, and the investment outlays of LG alone have already reached several billion PLN.
