    Friday | The Bennington Banner

    Months of rumors proved true in October when International Business Machines announced a deal to unload its semiconductor business, including the roughly five-decades-old manufacturing plant in Essex Junction. The news, accompanied by the message that new owner GlobalFoundries intended to keep the Vermont site operational, gave way for a collective sigh of relief: With about 4,000 employees even after a series of layoffs, IBM remains the state's largest commercial employer and by many accounts the backbone of Chittenden County's economy, itself the epicenter of Vermont's financial activity.
