Intel in Your Community

Intel® Malaysia was among the first U.S. companies to begin operations in Penang in 1972, with an initial investment of US$2 million. Since then, Intel has played a key role in establishing Malaysia as a Center for High Technology Manufacturing, opening an office in Kuala Lumpur in 1995 to build on the excellent performance of the Penang factories and employees. Intel was also the first to begin operations at the new high-tech park in Kulim in 1996.

To date, Intel has invested a total of US$1.9 billion in Malaysia and has trained and employed thousands of talented locals. Today, the company has a highly skilled workforce of more than 8,500.
