ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A new $319 million semiconductor facility is coming to western New York and it’s expected to create 600 jobs.

British-based company Edwards Vacuum has chosen the state’s “stamp” site in Genesee County for its new 240,000-square-foot campus.

The new facility will produce dry pump technology, which is a vital component to controlling the semiconductor manufacturing processes.

State leaders say this new commitment builds on the recent announcement from micron to build a $100 billion computer chip manufacturing plant in central New York.
