EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A global semiconductor supplier has announced that it is the mystery buyer who purchased Eugene’s former Hynix plant in an auction last month.

The Register-Guard reports (http://is.gd/03x8Co ) that Avago Technologies announced Thursday that it ended the Auction.com event with a $21 million offer. Officials say they expect the sale to close later in November.

The company, which has headquarters in Singapore and san Jose, Calif., says it will remodel the plant and use it to produce components for mobile phones.

Hynix made computer memory chips and was one of the area’s largest private employers before closing in 2008.

Avago says it is too early to say how any workers would be hired for the Eugene site or how much they will spend retrofitting the plant.
