The Odon facility is part of WestGate One, a multi-company complex that will be the first semiconductor foundry in the U.S. built specifically for advanced package manufacturing. NHanced and several other semiconductor companies will occupy the 10-acre public-private development adjacent to Crane, with future partnerships expected with industry, government and educational institutions.

The combined companies of WestGate One are expected to create more than 500 high-tech jobs with average salaries of more than $100,000 a year.

Speaking at the NHanced WestGate Facility, Sen. Young said, “Innovative companies like NHanced are not only providing good jobs, they are keeping us safe and secure by making technological advancements with military applications.”
