27.2.2022 | TSMC’s new Arizona chip-making plant runs into construction delays
TSMC’s new Arizona chip-making plant has run into construction delays, according to a new report from Nikkei Asia.
The work has fallen three to six months behind schedule due to a mixture of labor shortages, COVID-19 surges, and complexities in obtaining construction licenses.
According to Nikkei Asia’s report, TSMC originally hoped that the construction of facilities would have reached the point that it’d be able to start moving in chip-making equipment by September. It’s now expecting to have to push that to early 2023 instead.
