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.
“With this new plant, SK Siltron will hire workers and build the local economy in Bay County,” Beson said. “Modern technology needs high-quality semiconductors. Semiconductors are put to work by Michigan’s own auto industry, which employs people right here in Bay County. More local semiconductor production will keep our community moving forward.”
Beson welcomed Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and other government and business leaders to Bay County for the event.
SK Siltron also operates a nearby facility in Auburn.

My three kids and their fellow Bay County students are heading back to school, which makes me think about why I first entered public service a few years back. I ran for and served on my local school board to make sure my own children got a great education at Bangor Township Schools.
