AUSTIN —Samsung plans to lodge 290 employees at its Samsung Austin R&D Center on Texas Highway North Capital in Austin, according to a notice filed with the Texas Workforce Commission on Tuesday.
The Notice states that Samsung Austin Semiconductors LLC will close its Central Processing Unit project at that location by the end of 2019.
The company will also close its CPU unit at its Advanced Computer Lab in San Jose, as per the notice.
Michele Glaze, a spokeswoman with Samsung Austin Semiconductor, said the employees concerned would have the chance to work with the recruitment company.
"We don't take that lightly," Glaze said Friday. "It's a difficult decision," he said.
