HPE to invest $22 million in former Cray facility for supercomputer manufacturing

Establishing a Global Center of Excellence for High Performance Compute Manufacturing in Chippewa Falls

Hewlett Packard Enterprise is planning to invest $22 million in a former Cray Inc. research and development facility to modernize the location.

The company plans to create a Global Center of Excellence for High Performance Compute Manufacturing at its Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin location, where Cray had its R&D facilities prior to its 2019 acquisition.

“I want to thank Governor Evers and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) for helping us strengthen our presence in Wisconsin,” said Pete Ungaro, GM of HPC and mission critical solutions at HPE, and former Cray CEO.

“Cray and HPE have a long history in the Chippewa Valley, and we’re excited to grow this rapidly expanding part of HPE’s business in the region through our HPC Manufacturing Center of Excellence. The Enterprise Zone designation is an important first step in this initiative.”
