Some more good news for Colorado Springs regarding its push against a 10.1% unemployment rate, of which, lesser skilled, educated and qualified individuals make up a huge hunk of this jobless figure.
According to an article written by Rich Laden of the Gazette, “Entegris, a global high-tech company that employs about 200 people in Colorado Springs, announced Thursday it will expand its manufacturing operation here and add as many as 100 jobs over the next five years.
The Massachusetts-based, publicly held company makes and develops products for purifying, protecting and transporting critical materials used in the semiconductor and other high-tech industries. Worldwide, it employs about 2,900.
Later this year, Entegris plans to launch a manufacturing operation in a 40,000-square-foot building at 1555 Garden of the Gods Road, which is part of the former Intel campus on the city’s northwest side. At the facility, the company will develop and manufacture products to support the semiconductor industry’s move to larger, cheaper and more efficient silicon wafers.
Entegris’ local workforce ranges from entry-level engineers to production employees to senior managers and includes jobs in high-tech labs and clean-room manufacturing, Shaner said. Annual salaries range from about $25,000 for entry-level workers to as much as $150,000 for top managers. Of the 100 new employees, about 25 percent will be paid $80,000 and up, he said.”
