Micron Technology Chooses Atlanta for Research Center, Creates 500 Jobs

Micron Technology Inc., one of the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturers and the only U.S.-based manufacturer of memory, will open a state-of-the-art memory design center in Midtown Atlanta in January 2022. The new center will include offices, a data center, and research and development operations, creating 500 jobs in the metro Atlanta region.

Micron is an industry leader in memory and storage solutions with operations across 17 countries. The Fortune 500 company delivers innovations that fuel the data economy in key areas, including artificial intelligence (AI), 5G applications, data center, intelligent edge, and across the client and mobile user experience. This new design center will be a key component to the company’s global technology and product development infrastructure, which has existing centers of excellence in multiple countries around the world, as well as in several U.S. locations, including Micron’s corporate headquarters and world-leading technology development center in Boise, Idaho.

“Atlanta has become an emerging hub for high-tech, characterized by a rich culture and university ecosystem,” said Scott DeBoer, Executive Vice President of Technology and Products at Micron. “Establishing a memory design center in Atlanta enables us to partner closely with world-class universities on leading-edge technology development and expand our talent pool with people who can bring different ideas, backgrounds, and experiences to our R&D and innovation efforts.”
