Maxine Fassberg, Intel's Vice President and Intel Israel General Manager, awarded last week Maman Group with a special outstanding logistics award for high quality logistic services rendered during the construction of Intel's Fab28 project.
Intel's wafer Fab28 covers an area of 130,000m² in four buildings, with 20,000 square meters of 10 clean room space.
The completed Fab 28 structure measures 283 dunam. 770,000 meters of cables were put during the construction which is 1.7 times the length of the State of Israel.
350 tons of cables and other accessories were installed in the factory (equivalent of 2 Jumbo, 747 airplanes) as well as 45,000 lighting fixtures which produce 1.8 million watt, the equivalent of the lighting of 5 football stadiums.
The wafer Fab28 received an investment of around US$1 billion from Intel, with additional support worth about US$525 million coming from the government of Israel.
Fab 28 is set to manufacture at the 45-nanometer manufacturing node on 300-mm diameter wafers. The Fab28 is expected to generate exports worth US$3 billion annually.
At a meeting held last week to conclude the logistic part of the project, with the presence of Intel's European logistic director Ruri O'connor, Intel's Israel logistic director, Mrs. Pnina Wahav, Moti Levin, director general Maman Group, and Evelyn Cohen, General Manager FC (Flying Cargo) Int´l Transportation Ltd, Intel's representatives expressed their utmost appreciation for Maman group outstanding logistic performance throughout the two year project.
A spokesman for Maman added that Intel expressed not only their full satisfaction with Maman's team and their flexibility but also noted that supply chain solutions offered by Maman throughout the project were later applied by Intel around the world.
