MANASSAS, Va., May 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Micron Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: MU), today hosted U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo and Congressional and local officials for a tour of its Manassas, Va., advanced manufacturing facility. The visit underscored the importance of domestic semiconductor manufacturers, and highlighted Micron’s position in the industry as the only manufacturer of memory and storage products in the U.S. Secretary Raimondo was joined by U.S. Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Mark R. Warner (D-VA) along with Manassas Mayor Michelle Davis-Younger.
In a joint press conference, Secretary Raimondo, Senator Cornyn and Senator Warner highlighted the importance of federal support for the U.S. semiconductor industry, a vital component of the U.S. economy that underpins advancements in critical infrastructure. Micron President and CEO, Sanjay Mehrotra, noted the company’s expanding footprint in Manassas and expressed gratitude for the U.S. Government’s efforts to further promote innovation and strengthen the domestic semiconductor industry.
“Over the last year, there has been an increased focus on the importance of semiconductors – here in the U.S. and around the world,” said Mehrotra. “Semiconductors are the foundation on which the modern economy is built, and the applications they enable have kept America on the leading edge of technology innovation. As the only U.S. company that develops, manufactures, and sells leading-edge memory and storage products, we are energized to see the growing momentum to promote domestic semiconductor investments. The CHIPS for America Act aims to incentivize more manufacturing, R&D and innovation here in the U.S., and we look forward to continuing to work with Congress to see it across the finish line.”
