In October 2023, Amkor Technology, the world’s largest US-headquartered OSAT (outsourced semiconductor assembly and test) service provider, announced the grand opening of Amkor’s newest factory in Bac Ninh Province, Vietnam.
The USD 1.6 billion chip factory will become the company’s most advanced facility, delivering next-generation semiconductor packaging capabilities. The Vietnam campus is poised to become Amkor’s most extensive facility, occupying a substantial 57-acre expanse within the Yen Phong 2C Industrial Park.
Upon completion, it will feature 200,000 square meters of cleanroom space. Beginning with Advanced System in Package (SiP) and memory production, the factory will offer turnkey solutions—from design to electrical test—to the world’s leading semiconductor and electronic manufacturing companies.
Amkor has committed USD 1.6 billion for the first two phases of the project for facility, machinery, and equipment, making a substantial contribution to Vietnam’s economic growth. The result will be Amkor’s most advanced facility, delivering next-generation semiconductor packaging capabilities.
According to Amkor’s representative, the factory in Vietnam will help Amkor provide a competitive geographic footprint to its customers. The new manufacturing plant is expected to contribute to a secure and reliable supply chain—in communications, automotive, high-performance computing, and other key industries. A large and skilled workforce, a strategic location, and support from government authorities made it a stretegic location for Amkor’s continued growth.
