Intel delaying 14nm production in Ireland

Electronics Weekly reports a slowdown in demand has prompted Intel to delay the introduction of 14nm manufacturing to its chip manufacturing plant in Leixlip, Ireland. A news report by The Irish Times mentioned that Intel has sent home early 600 Irish staff who were being trained in the US for the introduction of the 14nm process in Leixlip:
The worry among Irish employees is that Intel may re-consider using Leixlip for 14nm. It was thought that the decision to use it for 14nm was a key factor in keeping it going.

Intel employs 4,500 people in Ireland making it the country's largest private employer.

The 600 Irish staff were being trained on 14nm tools in Arizona and New Mexico. They are returning home in December, several months ahead of the planned end of training.

Intel recently spent $3.5bn at Oregon where it is feared by the Irish employees that the 14nm line output planned for Ireland might be relocated.
