Micron FAB 10X

A carefully prepared investment

Micron, a US-based company, is a world leader in innovative solutions for memory storage. Air Liquide is a longtime customer by investing in Fab 10X, Micron's new ultra-innovative plant in Singapore. A look back on this major strategic investment, prepared and completed by the Group in record time.

Singapore is home to Micron's largest manufacturing footprint.The company's newly expanded Fab 10X nearly doubles its clean room space in Singapore, adding additional 255,000 square feet to the fabrication facility. This ambitious project will facilitate efficient implementation of 3D NAND production, giving Micron the flexibility to gradually add incremental capacity in response to market requirements.

Air Liquide played a key role in building a large ultra-pure nitrogen and oxygen production unit on-site with one of the largest capacities to date for these technologies.

The FAB 10X was completed in 18 months on a budget of $4 billion

Air Liquide's decision to invest in the new Singapore site reflects a relationship of trust that dates back to 1993 with Micron, an industry leader recognized for its innovation.

A key driver behind the investment: Micron's already strong presence in Singapore, which includes a multi-technology center, an Asia-Pacific shared services center, a sales and marketing office, three fabrication facilities, and a testing and assembly site.

Steps to prepare the investment's approval included regular exchanges between Air Liquide and Micron teams and detailed analysis of the project. The various discussions were critical to understan the customer's needs and to leverage Air Liquide's expertise in order to offer the best-in-class solution for the project.
