Intel established a presence in Israel in 1974 in Haifa with five employees. Today the company employs about 10,000 people, in addition to indirectly supporting the employment of 30,000 workers in Israel. About 60% of Intel Israel's employees are engaged in cutting-edge R&D, while half support high-volume manufacturing of microprocessors that power the world's computing devices.
As Israel's largest privately-held employer and exporter, and as the leader of the local electronics and information industry, Intel Israel is one of the building blocks of Israel's high-tech industry and an important component in the country's economic foundation.
Intel has four development centers located in Haifa, Yakum, Petach Tikva and Jerusalem, as well as manufacturing-related facilities in Kiryat Gat and Jerusalem.
Intel has committed to invest 1.87 billion New Israeli Shekels (NIS) in procurement every year for the next decade. This means that in the next 10 years, Intel will spend NIS 18.7 billion, mainly through small to medium Israel suppliers.
Intel in the Community
Intel has contributed to Israel in countless social and community activities over the past 42 years.
Intel collaborates with schools, municipalities and community organizations in a range of initiatives. Intel donated NIS 23 million to community activities in 2015.
Intel invested 20 million NIS to enhance STEM education in Israel. This four-year commitment allowed Intel to create the We Are The Future initiative with an umbrella of targeted programs for students and teachers in close collaboration with Israel's ministry of education.
