Construction is underway for nearly a half billion dollar expansion at the
Hemlock Semiconductor Corporation (HSC)
headquarters in Hemlock, Michigan.
HSC is the world’s largest producer of polycrystalline silicon, which is
today’s cornerstone material used in the production of semiconductor devices
and solar cells that create renewable energy from sunlight.
A Dow Corning joint venture, HSC predicts that the solar energy industry
will grow at a 20 to 25 percent pace over the next 10 years – contributing to
the sustainability of our environment through use of an always available energy
With the building expansion, HSC will also expand its ability to provide
high quality products to solar and semiconductor industry customers. A
significant number of jobs will also be created, improving the economic
activity in the region. This is another great example of Dow Corning’s
commitment to making solar energy a viable solution to today’s energy
