Micron Technology, Inc. marked a historic day with the opening of its new cutting-edge assembly and test facility in Batu Kawan, Penang, alongside the celebration of Micron’s 45th anniversary.
Micron previously invested $1 billion and will add up to another billion including construction and full equipping of this new facility over the next few years in Penang to increase factory space to a total of 1.5 million square feet. The expansion is aimed to boost production output and further strengthen its assembly and test capabilities, allowing it to supply leading-edge NAND, PCDRAM and SSD modules to meet the growing demand for transformative technologies such as artificial intelligence and autonomous or electric vehicles.
The Batu Kawan facility distinguishes itself by adopting smart manufacturing applications to optimize efficiency, yield, and production quality, ensuring Micron continues to deliver world-class products efficiently and reliably.
In 2022, Micron announced that its facilities in Malaysia are the first within Micron’s global network to be powered by 100% renewable electricity. The operations for this new facility will also support Micron’s sustainability aspirations to achieve net-zero emission by 2050 and zero hazardous waste to landfills by 2030.
