Youngkin and Warner team up to bring microchip manufacturing to Virginia

Governor Glenn Youngkin and Senator Mark Warner came together earlier this week at a conference in Fairfax in a bipartisan effort to encourage global leaders to bring microchip manufacturers to the Commonwealth.

Governor Youngkin highlighted a number of attractive benefits in bringing manufacturers to Virginia including lucrative incentives, the proximity to the federal government, the country’s defense contracting hub, one of the largest cargo ports, and one of the best public and private university systems.

The event held at Northrop Grumman’s global headquarters in partnership with Virginia Tech highlighted the Virginia Alliance of Semiconductor Technology program which is building a pipeline of graduate students to enter the semiconductor field.

The federal government recently dedicated $52 million in an incentive package that Senator Warner was heavily involved in developing to help bring semiconductor projects to the country as currently only 12% of chips are made domestically.
