According to reports, Infineon plans to add about 100 more positions in the Dresden fab in Germany. It is estimated that by the end of 2021, the total number of employees in the fab will increase to 2,900.

Infineon Division Manager Thomas Morgenstern said: "Our capacity utilization rate has now reached almost 100%."

In addition, Infineon is also considering building a fourth factory module in the fab. The product line will focus on automotive power semiconductors. However, according to Infineon, the implementation of this plan depends on market conditions and state subsidies.

The company spokesperson Gregor Rodehüser told the media Evertiq that it plans to continue to invest 1.1 billion euros in the Dresden fab in the next five years, but it has not yet decided whether to build a fourth factory module, which depends on the growth prospects of the entire industry.
