We Are At The Bottom Line, Folks
PHOENIX (Reuters) - Seven workers at an Intel Corp microchip manufacturing complex outside Phoenix were injured by a small explosion there on Tuesday, fire officials reported, but the company said production was unaffected.
The blast of undetermined origin occurred shortly after 2 p.m. local time in a support building at the Intel site in Chandler, Arizona, just southeast of the state capital, said Chandler Fire Department Battalion Chief Brad Miller.
A spokesman for the world's leading chipmaker said the accident site was under construction at the time and that production was uninterrupted.
Shares in the Santa Clara, California-based company were holding steady in after-hours trading.
