Hemlock Semiconductor will donate 833 acres from their property that extends the community’s industrial park inventory north and open the door to recruiting other major employers to the area.

Hemlock Semiconductor held 2,200 acres with over half of that taking in the company’s megasite. Only 300 acres were left in IDB hands for other development. The land gives the IDB direct access to the infrastructure already in place and direct access to R.J. Corman railroad. The infrastructure includes sewer, natural gas, direct access to Highway 49, and a city-owned watertank.

Hankook Tire, which breaks ground October 9, took a large tract of land in the south sector of the Business Park to built an $800 million, 1.5 million square foot plant. Hankook is expected to hire 1,800 people.

While HSC could still resume maufacturing of solar panels in Clarksville, they laid off 300 employees in 2013 but retain 50 staff on site to maintain the plant. HSC is adamant that the land donation is not indicative of of a total shutdown.
