INTEL TO CUT 675 JOBS AT DEC’S HUDSON CHIP PLANT

By CBR Staff Writer

Intel is to cut 675 jobs at the Hudson, Massachusetts-based plant it acquired from Digital Equipment Corp, according to reports. Hudson’s Fab 17 makes DEC Alpha, StrongARM, PCI Bridge chips and Ethernet chips. Intel paid $700m for the plant and 2,000 manufacturing personnel as part of the RISC patent infringement battle it waged with DEC last year. Current staffing levels are said to be around 1,600. The plant will continue producing the same products, and the move is said to be part of Intel’s efficiency drive.
