Intel in California

We have invested in California for five decades, since our founding in Mountain View in 1968.

Innovating in California

Founded in 1968, we purchased our first piece of property – a 26-acre pear orchard on the corner of Coffin Road and Central Expressway in Santa Clara, California in 1970. Today, we have 14,600 employees across the state at three major sites in Santa Clara, San Jose, and Folsom, and at research and development sites in Irvine and San Diego. Santa Clara is home to Intel’s corporate headquarters and the flagship Intel Museum, which showcases five decades of Intel innovations.

Intel in the Community

Our success depends on the health of our local community. Intel hires from local schools and universities, invests in research and development, and buys from California-based businesses. We don’t just work here – we live here too. We’re raising our families here, volunteering in classrooms and at nonprofits, and serving in community leadership positions.

From investing in on-site alternative energy, green buildings, and water conservation, to implementing circular waste management practices and partnering with nonprofits on water restoration projects in the community, a focus on the environment is a focus on our future.
