Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company, Inc. Holds Groundbreaking on New Texas Manufacturing Facility
Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company, Inc. (MGC) recently held a groundbreaking ceremony on a new manufacturing facility in Killeen, Texas for MGC Pure Chemicals America, Inc. (MPCA), a consolidated subsidiary producing and distributing super-pure hydrogen peroxide. As a global leader featuring the highest quality standards and underlying analysis and quality assurance capabilities, MGC Group already operates three production sites in Japan and four others across the world but needed additional capacity due to growing demand.
Gray Construction, a nationally-ranked engineering, architecture and construction firm, was selected to design and build the new facility on a 13-acre site, which is expected to be operational by 2019. Gray was also instrumental in the site selection of the Texas location as well as incentive negotiations.
“We are thrilled to be part of this exciting project with Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company,” said Stephen Gray, president and CEO of Gray Construction. “The technological advances the company will impact the entire manufacturing industry.”
According to MGC Group, super-pure hydrogen peroxide is used primarily as a cleaning, etching and abrading agent in semiconductor wafer and device manufacturing processes. With expected growth in the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI), the market for semiconductor operations is also projected to increase.
MGC Group plans to create some twenty jobs in the first year and expand further going into the next five years. The company also recently announced another new manufacturing facility in Oregon, which is also a Gray project that will begin production in 2019 as well.
