The Killeen Economic Development Corporation (KEDC) has conveyed an additional 2.8 acres to MGC Pure Chemicals America for the purpose of constructing Phase II of the facility.

Phase II will result in an additional $12 million capital investment and create three to five additional jobs with an average salary of $66,000. MPCA broke ground on Phase I in August 2017 and will result in a capital investment of approximately $28 million. When complete, the MPCA facility will total an approximate $40 million capital investment making them one of the largest taxpayers in the City of Killeen. It will provide more than thirty jobs with an average salary of $66,000.

Phase I will process and purify Hydrogen Peroxide and will go into commercial production in early 2019. Phase II will process and purify Ammonium Hydroxide. Both products are used in the semiconductor manufacturing industry. 

MPCA has received several awards for quality control and has a record of 100% safety including its parent company. No unstable chemicals will be kept at the Killeen site. Security measures include internal/external onsite cameras, around-the-clock security and multiple security card access points.
