IonQ announced plans to open the first known dedicated quantum computing manufacturing facility in the United States in Bothell. The new facility will house IonQ's growing R&D and manufacturing teams. With public support from U.S. Senator Patty Murray and Congresswoman Suzan DelBene, U.S. representative from Washington's 1st congressional district, the announcement is part of IonQ's broader intent to invest $1 billion through expansion in the Pacific Northwest over the next 10 years. The 65,000 square foot facility will house IonQ's second quantum data center and be the primary production engineering location for IonQ in North America. IonQ hopes to add thousands of new jobs and opportunities to the region over the coming years. IonQ Vice President of Product Engineering Dave Mehuys, who joined IonQ in March 2022 from a senior leadership role at Psiquantum, will oversee the build out of the new facility. With over two decades of experience managing systems hardware engineering, module component engineering, customer service, and manufacturing operations, Mehuys will play an integral part of IonQ's growth in the region. IonQ was founded in 2015 by Christopher Monroe and Jungsang Kim based on 25 years of research.
