49 new jobs for Raheen Industrial Park

A US firm has announced the creation of 49 jobs for Limerick.

OnSemiconductor, a ‘supplier of efficient silicon solutions’ is reported to be establishing a Research and development plant in the Raheen Industrial Park.

ON Semiconductor’s new R&D centre in Limerick aims to become a centre of expertise in digital power management and thermal management for next-generation processors, creating 49 high-calibre jobs for semiconductor designers and engineers.
It will develop controller and driver integrated circuits for next-generation processors in servers, gaming consoles, desktop and laptop computers. Some 28 employees are already in place.

Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, ON Semiconductor designs, manufactures and markets power and data management semiconductors and standard semiconductor components worldwide. Its existing Limerick operation won the R&D centre project against strong competition from other ON Semiconductor sites worldwide.
