SK Siltron CSS opens facility in Monitor Township
State Rep. Timmy Beson today celebrated the opening of a new semiconductor manufacturing facility in Bay County.
Beson, R-Bangor Township, helped cut the ribbon at the new Monitor Township plant opened by SK Siltron CSS, which produces semiconductor wafers. The project — a $300 million investment — is expected to create as many as 150 local jobs.
