According to BusinessKorea, South Korea’s semiconductor silicon wafer supplier SK Siltron plans to invest US$300 million in its plant in Auburn, Michigan, and employ 150 employees to increase production to supply more SiC wafers.

SK Siltron is the world's fifth largest silicon wafer manufacturer. It acquired DuPont's SiC wafer business in March last year and decided to directly use DuPont's factory in Michigan.

The report quoted SK Siltron's latest statement showing that it has decided to double the number of employees at the Michigan factory and build more factories in Bay City, Michigan in the next three years.
