Texas Instruments plans to close its Houston-based facility.

Workers at the computer chip factory on Highway 59 and South Kirkwood have received word they would no longer have a job. The Stafford company plans to lay off all 500 employees over the next 11 months. The company says employees will know by April 1 when their last day of work will be.

There is a possibility some employees could work at other TI facilities.
