Kansas firm seeks to buy former Qimonda plant

A Kansas firm with ties to the data centre and technology industry wants to buy the former Qimonda memory-chip manufacturing plant in eastern Henrico County for US$12 million. It is unclear what plans the firm, Richmond Semiconductor, may have for the 210-acre campus, which features 1.36 million sq ft of administrative offices, clean rooms and manufacturing space.

 

In early 2008, the property was assessed at US$155.5 million. As of January 1, the value was US$34.4 million. Qimonda filed for bankruptcy protection in February 2008 after its parent company filed for insolvency in Germany. The company eventually closed the local semiconductor plant, laying off more than 1,000 employees.
