Intel Israel Ltd. said Tuesday that it will recruit 1,000 new employees in 2011 to develop and upgrade its Kiryat Gat factory, which will produce 22 nanometer technology for semiconductors.

“We are going to invest $2.7 billion in the next two years in 22 nanometer technology. We will undertake it in our clean room with additional workforce but without building another factory,” said Maxine Fassberg, Intel Israel’s general manager at a press conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday. “There will be an exchange of machinery that will lower the pace of production while we are bringing in the machinery with new technology at the same time.”
