NeoCity back in business with tech firm replacing UCF

This is the first of a multi-part series on the transitions happening at NeoCity, an economic and legislative priority in Osceola County.  
 
SkyWater, which specializes in development and manufacturing of integrated circuits, has taken over operation of the Center of NeoVation from the University of Central Florida.

SkyWater Technology is producing semiconductors for the military at the $75 million fabrication facility at NeoCity built by Osceola County. More importantly, they’re hiring.

The Minnesota-based company is looking for engineers, managers and technicians. “Joining our team means contributing to the commercialization of some of the most exciting technologies the world has ever seen,” says the company’s job ad intro on Indeed.com.

The county built the semiconductor “fab” and tech park in an effort to diversify the local economy, from its traditional tourism and agriculture base and more toward the higher-paying technology industry.

SkyWater took over the fab in February and appears to be breathing new life into the beleaguered technology park since the University of Central Florida abruptly pulled out of the project last summer amid administrative shake-ups at the school.
