Hilco Global

NORTHBROOK, ILL., April 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hilco Industrial: Offering of the former Hoku Materials Polysilicon Processing Plant for sale.
JH Kelly LLC has retained Hilco Industrial, Hackman Capital Partners, and Perry Videx to offer and sell the former Hoku Materials facility in Pocatello, ID. The facility was originally designed as a 4,000MT polysilicon production facility. An estimated $700M USD has been invested in the facility and infrastructure to date.

The 67 acre heavy industrial site is leased from the City of Pocatello and has proximity to Interstates 15 and 86 and is adjacent to the Union Pacific Railroad mainline track. Infrastructure on the site includes an existing Idaho Power Substation that provides up to 131MW with a Large Power Tariff available, natural gas feed with 5,690 scfm maximum usage forecasted, potable water sourced from City of Pocatello, and Air Permits from the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality.

Both the City of Pocatello and the Bannock County Economic Development Commission are actively engaged in the sales process with JH Kelly and are eager to work with interested parties in putting the site and its infrastructure to its highest and best use. The parcel can certainly be completed and utilized for its original design as a polysilicon manufacturing facility, but a recent engineering study commissioned by JH Kelly also suggests that the site and a large portion of the infrastructure may be repurposed to process titanium dioxide, recover magnesium, and produce specialty chemicals or pharmaceuticals. The Facility is also especially adaptable to processes that employ chlorine. Major processes at the facility include TCS and HCI production, TCS and HCI purification and storage, CVD process, vent gas recovery, vent scrubbing, and chlorosilane recovery.

Hilco Industrial, Hackman Capital Partners and Perry Videx will be marketing this offering globally. Information about the offering may be viewed at http://www.hilcoind.com.
