“Samsung & Austin haven’t just met, as the company already has an existing chip plant in Silicon Hills, a nickname that has caught on since the 1990s in Austin due to all the tech & development growth. Samsung is looking at creating 1800 jobs to staff the potential 7M square foot facility.”  -Scott Luton
