GLOBALFOUNDRIES entered the foundry industry in early 2009 with a simple but ambitious goal to become the world's first truly global foundry. In a short span of time, we have achieved this milestone with manufacturing operations spanning three continents for flexible and secure supply. Furthermore, we are charting a bold new course to completely reshape the landscape of the foundry industry through a collaborative approach to both technology development and customer engagement.
As the former manufacturing arm of AMD, we possess tremendous assets in our leading-edge manufacturing and technology capabilities. With the integration of Chartered Semiconductor, initiated in late 2009, GLOBALFOUNDRIES achieved scale as one of the world's largest foundries in the world by revenue, with more than 150 customers, creating a new platform for innovation to drive the current and future generations of semiconductor technology.
Our manufacturing centers in Germany, the United States and Singapore deliver advanced technologies to market in high volume and mature yield faster than any other foundry in the world, and offer an outstanding legacy of foundry operational and customer service excellence.
