Wacker Polysilicon North America wants to fill about 60 more lead and supervisory positions in chemical and technical manufacturing areas for its Charleston, Tenn., plant.
“Our new hires will be part of a team working at a state-of-the-art company in the green industry of renewable energy. These positions offer lots of opportunity for upward mobility, as well,” said Erika Burk, director of human resources for the local facility.
She said plans are to begin interviews for the jobs in November.
The company already has hired the initial 70 lead chemical operators, and they’re training at the Wacker Institute at Chattanooga State Community College.
The company plans to eventually hire between 650 and 700 people for the $1.5 billion plant that will make polysilicon for use in the solar industry.
