In a move to keep up with rivals, Globalfoundries pledges $3 billion to boost capacity in its global facilities.

Globalfoundries announced it will spend an additional $3 billion to boost production at its factories in New York and Germany. The investment is in addition to $6 billion already pledged by the company to challenge rival global chip vendors, BusinessWeek reports.

We are here, we are serious and we are a player. This foundry segment only has a couple of players who are serious and we are one of them.
