Ultra Clean creates 100 Cavan jobs

Ultra Clean Holdings is establishing an Advanced Technology Cleaning Centre in Cavan.

In response to surging demand in the semiconductor industry Ultra Clean Holdings (UTC) is to create 100 new jobs in Cavan.

The business is establishing an Advanced Cleaning Technology Centre (ATCC) in Cavan that will be UCT’s 15th Services site and will primarily support Intel Corporation and other European-based customers.

“This state-of-the-art facility will enable us to better serve and deliver value to our European customer base and capitalise on longer-term growth opportunities”

The project, which will create approximately 100 jobs when fully operational, is supported by the Irish Government through Ireland’s inward investment agency, IDA Ireland.

Advanced construction

“I’m delighted to welcome Ultra Clean Holdings to Cavan, where the company will have a rich talent pool to choose from to fill these 100 new jobs,” said Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Innovation, Leo Varadkar, TD.

“Semiconductor chips have become essential to our everyday lives and that dependence is only going to grow. This Advanced Technology Cleaning Centre is a really welcome addition to the thriving semiconductor industry here – an industry which we are keen to expand further. I wish the team all the very best.”

Construction is advancing at the 57,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility located on the IDA Ireland Business & Technology Park at Killgarry, Cavan and is expected to be completed in Q3 this year. Roles at the new facility will include engineering, manufacturing, facilities, on-site shipping and receiving, quality control, sales, and customer service positions. The site is expected to be operational in Q3 2022.

“As a worldwide leader in ultra-clean parts cleaning and analytics, we are proud to partner with IDA Ireland to expand our global footprint and advance our leading-edge technology,” said Bill Bentinck, President UCT Services.

“This state-of-the-art facility will enable us to better serve and deliver value to our European customer base and capitalise on longer-term growth opportunities.”

The new site will be an outlier for UCT’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy.

“UCT has a long-standing commitment to sustainability and continually strives to minimize its impact on the environment,” said Shay Torton, UCT’s VP Operations, EMEA. “The new site will be constructed with sustainable solutions where possible, and we are committed to enhancing the Cavan economy and community by being an active partner and good neighbour.”

IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan added: “This is a most welcome investment for Ireland, for Cavan and the North East region. UCT’s manufacturing and analytical capabilities will add to the level of expertise within the semiconductor sector here and positions the region to capture further such investment. IDA Ireland’s strong focus and commitment to winning investments for regional locations continues. I wish UCT every success here.”
