NEW ALBANY, Ohio (WCMH) – Excitement is growing following the announcement Friday that tech giant Intel is planning to build a $20 billion semiconductor computer chip factory in central Ohio.

Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said Ohio is already feeling some of the effects of the announcement.

It’s only been two days since Intel and state leaders shared the news, and Husted said the phone has already been ringing with others now considering setting up in Ohio.

“It’s really an opportunity of a lifetime for our state,” Husted said. “I can tell you as a result of this announcement that our phones are ringing. People from across the country are going, ‘OK, Intel is in Ohio, maybe we need to be there too.”
