Mountain Top, PA – June 21, 2018 – ON Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient innovations, plans to invest $51 million to support expansion of the Luzerne County facility. The ON Semiconductor Mountain Top location specializes in the manufacturing of semiconductor discrete devices used in power management applications across a wide variety of industries including automotive, industrial, communication and computing.
Today, ON Semiconductor occupies 437,000 square feet of space on 84 acres in the Crestwood Industrial Park. The Mountain Top site is a high-tech location with a highly-skilled workforce, benefits, clean work environment, and open communication environment. The investment is planned to increase production and in turn create over 70 new jobs including productions staff, technicians, engineers and other support staff.
