MOUNTAIN TOP, Pa.—ON Semiconductor reported that it plans to invest $51 million to expand its Luzerne County facility. The ON Semiconductor Mountain Top location manufactures semiconductor discrete devices used in power management applications across a wide variety of industries, including automotive, industrial, communication, and computing.
ON Semiconductor occupies 437,000 square feet of space on 84 acres in the Crestwood Industrial Park. The Mountain Top site is a high-tech location with a highly skilled workforce, benefits, clean work environment, and open communication environment. The investment is planned to increase production and, in turn, create more than 70 new jobs, including production staff, technicians, engineers, and other support staff.
“We have an outstanding team of highly motivated employees combining our technical capabilities and expansive space capacity to meet exploding business growth in critical markets for ON Semiconductor,” said Heather Carreiro, general manager at ON Semiconductor’s Mountain Top facility, in a press release. “The initial phase of expansion is currently underway. I’m very proud of our accomplishments and excited about the future of our operation here in Mountain Top.”
With its acquisition of Fairchild’s product portfolio of medium and high voltage products in late 2016, complementing ON Semiconductor’s specialization in low power, the company now has a complete suite of power conversion and power management technologies. This positions ON Semiconductor to support customers across multiple sectors in working purposefully toward realizing the degree of energy efficiency desired by their customers and increasingly required by regulations, the company said in the release.
ON Semiconductor (https://www.onsemi.com/) is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, and offers a portfolio of more than 80,000 energy efficient power management, analog, sensors, logic, timing, connectivity, discrete, SoC, and custom devices. The devices are used in computing, consumer, industrial, medical, and military/aerospace applications. The company operates a network of manufacturing facilities, sales offices, and design centers that are in key markets throughout North America, Europe, and in the Asia Pacific region.
