electronicsMetro New Mexico's electronics cluster is diverse and growing. Anchored by Intel Corporation, the cluster includes lab spinoffs and start-ups, mature home-grown firms, and relocating companies. Other activities in the region include:

  • Manufacturing computer chips, silicon wafers and electronic components and equipment
  • Developing and producing semiconductor measurement tools and training equipment
  • Electronics fabrication and assembly


Electronics companies looking to expand or relocate to New Mexico will find a very business-friendly climate. The state offers a skilled workforce, low utility rates, affordable business locations and an excellent transportation infrastructure. New Mexico offers the electronics industry a wide variety of financial incentives as part of its commitment to developing its economic base.

Training availability starts in high school with the Advanced Technology Academy and extends through graduate work. Central New Mexico Community College's Manufacturing Technology program, developed with industry input, is well established, and the University of New Mexico's School of Engineering has degree programs in manufacturing engineering, with a semiconductor and electronics track.


Industry Leaders

Since 1980, Intel in Rio Rancho has expanded three times. Its semiconductor manufacturing operation is now the largest of its kind in the world. Small and medium-size companies do well here as well. Bi Ra Systems Inc., founded in 1972, is a family-owned designer of electronic lab equipment. Affordable land and low interest rates made it possible for the company to buy a building and expand.
