Nvidia supplier SK Hynix plans to invest $3.87 billion in U.S. chip facility

SK Hynix, one of the world's largest memory chipmakers, said it would invest $3.87 billion in its first chip packaging facility in the U.S., marking another victory for the Biden administration's efforts to onshore chip production.

The South Korean firm announced the West Lafayette, Indiana-based project at an event at Purdue University on Wednesday, with officials from Indiana State and the U.S. government in attendance. 

SK Hynix said the facility, slated for operation in 2028, will house a production line for SK Hynix's cutting-edge high-bandwidth memory chips — important components in the Nvidia GPUs used to train AI systems like ChatGPT.

The project will also bring more than a thousand new jobs to the region and will include an R&D facility to develop future generations of chips, according to the company.

The act provides billions in incentives for companies to onshore chip production in the U.S., on condition they do not expand certain semiconductor manufacturing operations in China and other countries deemed a national security risk. 

Sen. Todd Young, R-Ind., said in a statement "The CHIPS and Science Act opened a door that Indiana has been able to sprint
