SK Siltron CSS has invested $300 million in Michigan’s Bay County to increase the production of solutions that improve the performance of electric vehicles.

In Michigan, SK Group’s SK Siltron CSS manufactures silicon carbide (SiC) wafers, which can be used in the semiconductor power components of electric vehicles (EVs).

A single 6-inch diameter wafer, made by SK Siltron CSS, can make upwards of 450 semiconductor chips, enough to supply as many as eight EVs. Those semiconductor chips also help increase the range of EVs by up to 10% and can speed up their charging times.

As more drivers switch to EVs, so does the need for the type of under-the-hood innovations manufactured by SK Siltron CSS.

In Michigan, across its two facilities in Bay City and Auburn, SK Siltron CSS employs 260 people.
