(Reuters) – South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said on Tuesday it had not made a final decision on the location of a new $17 billion chip plant in the United States, after the Wall Street Journal reported it would be Taylor, Texas.
The WSJ said Texas Governor Greg Abbott was scheduled to make an “economic announcement” on Tuesday at 5 p.m. (2300 GMT).
A site in Texas’s Williamson County, near the city of Taylor, offered the best incentives package of the sites Samsung was considering, sources previously told Reuters. The world’s biggest memory chipmaker has said it is also considering sites in Arizona and New York.
The new plant is set to make advanced logic chips used to power mobile devices and autonomous vehicles, as the global auto industry faces a significant semiconductor shortage.
