Re: Magdeburg

Magdeburg, of course, has a long history with vacuum technology, but I suspect the real factor is that it is well in the former East Germany and doubtless eligible for some sort of tax incentive or "levelling up" scheme. Germany and Italy are keen to attract that kind of high value work especially to disadvantaged areas.

As for Intel coming the the UK, I don't imagine our Department of Business knows the difference between a silicon chip and an oven chip.
