Freescale Retains Colliers ATREG To Sell UK Manufacturing Facilities in East Kilbride and Dunfermline

    Operational Wafer Manufacturing Facility and Wafer Manufacturing Shell
    Offer Additional Capacity, Diversification and Development Opportunities

    SEATTLE, Sept. 4 /CNW/ -- Freescale Semiconductor has retained Colliers
ATREG, in conjunction with Colliers CRE in Scotland, to assist with the sale
of its two wafer manufacturing facilities in the United Kingdom.  The
facilities include an operational 150-mm semiconductor manufacturing facility
in East Kilbride and a 200-mm wafer fabrication shell in Dunfermline.
    Freescale's 25 acre East Kilbride site features a 0.35-micron capable
volume wafer manufacturing facility, including a 92,000-square-foot (8,547 m2)
wafer fab cleanroom, and approximately 700 advanced process tools.  For over
20 years this well maintained, centrally located facility has produced volume,
high quality automotive semiconductor products and leading edge power devices
for the networking and wireless communication industries.   Property website:
    Freescale's 150 acre Dunfermline site includes a 1-million-square-foot
(93,000 m2) facility shell constructed in 1997 but not fully completed and
never occupied.  Some facility infrastructure is on-site, but non-operational.
This allows users the ability to customize and complete the infrastructure to
meet the requirements of their specific operations.  Property website:
    "Our team of global semiconductor market specialists is implementing a
worldwide campaign to reach all potential semiconductor and advanced
technology users," said Doug Barrett, Colliers senior vice president and
director of ATREG.  "Both facilities offer significant cost and time-to-market
advantages for a producer seeking additional capacity, or who wishes to
manufacture a more diverse or advanced range of semiconductor devices."
    "Freescale has retained Colliers ATREG because of their global track
record in selling semiconductor facilities as going concerns," said Greg
Heinlein, Freescale vice president and treasurer.  "Freescale is seeking
buyers who can fully realize the inherent value of these first class
manufacturing facilities."
