Intel Israel to recruit 600 workers in 2012

Global chip giant Intel announces it will recruit hundreds of new employees. 'Intel's center in Israel is highly important for global operations,' says incoming company president

Intel's Israel-based center announced Sunday that it plans to recruit 600 workers in 2012. A company official stated that 2011 saw a $2.2 billion revenue in exports and offset deals estimated at $628 million.


At a press conference Sunday, Intel-Israel declared that since 2006 the company has contributed over $4.1 billion to Israel's economy. An official added that during the course of 2011, Intel recruited over 700 employees.


Incoming President of Intel-Israel Mooly Eden noted that "Intel's center in Israel is highly important for global company's operations."


Regarding the negotiations for a new research and development center in Israel, Eden said: "A decision has yet to be made regarding the company's future investments and expansion in Israel."


Eden's appointment initially called into question the position of Intel-Israel's General Manager Maxine Fassberg.


When asked why Intel Israel needed both a President and a GM, Eden replied that the "decision came following Intel's recognition of Israel's importance as an R&D center."
