GlobalFoundries Fab 8
Serving One of the Largest Public-Private Sector Investments in New York State History
Our senior partner Matt Jones served as lead counsel for the successful 2008 zoning amendments in the towns of Malta and Stillwater that led to the construction of GlobalFoundries Fab 8, a semiconductor manufacturing facility with a reported investment in excess of $13 billion. At the time of approvals, Governor Paterson said “As one of the largest public-private sector investments in New York state history, this project will fuel long-term growth in the Capital District and cement our state’s reputation as a world leader in new economy innovation.”
On July 26, 2022 Matt again led the GlobalFoundries team in Malta and Stillwater for the municipal approvals of Fab 8.2, a multi-billion-dollar addition to the campus currently consisting of Fab 8.1 and the Technology Development Center. Two weeks later, President Biden signed the CHIPS legislation that will partially fund Fab 8.2 and other semiconductor manufacturing facilities across the United States.
