EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - Intel – the world-famous computer chip maker – has opened a production office in Eau Claire.

It’s the result of a deal struck last year by Intel and Cray Incorporated in nearby Chippewa Falls.

Intel bought Cray’s interconnect hardware development operation for $140 million – and part of the deal required 74 Cray employees to join Intel in Eau Claire.

Officials said Intel is now operating in a 40,000 square foot building that was vacant for several months. It used to house a Web design firm.
