FROM THE ARCHIVES
A 67-acre site in Pocatello, Idaho, that in 2007 was slated to host 200 jobs in a new $260-million polysilicon plant from Hawaii-based Hoku Scientific was sold in December 2013 for $8.3 million to construction firm JH Kelly. Hoku was taken over by Chinese firm Tianwei in 2009, as the plant's investment total climbed toward $700 million. Construction ceased in 2012, followed by bankruptcy in July 2013. JH Kelly had filed fraud charges against the company in August 2013. Meanwhile, ON Semiconductor continues to prosper in Pocatello, where it employs 600 people.
