Killeen News Now – Dongjin Semichem Texas will spend an estimated $70 million to build its first US facility at Killeen Business Park.
According to a presentation by Scott Connell, president and CEO of the Killeen Economic Development Corporation, Dongjin Semichem, a south Korean chemical company, has plans to acquire and develop at least 31 acres at the Killeen Business Park in northeast Killeen.
