President Joe Biden on Friday applauded a newly announced Intel semiconductor chip factory outside Columbus as “a truly historic investment in America and American workers,” that will help restore the industrial Midwest and “shows the world we’re always going to fight for American workers.”

Construction will begin on a pair of factories in the Columbus area later this year and should finish in 2025. The $20 billion project will employ 3,000 workers and is expected to support jobs for an additional 17,000 people in fields like construction, engineering, entertainment and restaurants, according to state officials.

Intel says it eventually plans to expand the project when it’s fully built out in 10 years. It could result in an additional $100 billion investment in Ohio that the company says would make it one of the largest semiconductor manufacturing sites in the world. Workers at the new plant will make an average of $135,000 a year, according to state officials.
