Osceola County picks SkyWater Technology to assume Bridg lease and create NeoCity jobs

A Minnesota microchip manufacturer may move into Osceola County’s NeoCity.

The board of county commissioners on Oct. 5 approved a memorandum of understanding with Bloomington, Minnesota-based SkyWater Technology Foundry Inc., previously identified as Project Bromine. The new partner would take over for the University of Central Florida, which ended its relationship with Kissimmee-based Bridg in August. SkyWater Technology Foundry also would create up to 220 jobs in the NeoCity tech district.
