Last Thursday a new industry announced that it would be spending $179 million to locate in Hancock County, creating 124 new jobs.

Whiterock Pigments, Inc., out of Cleveland, Ohio, will purchase the vacant former Alcoa building and convert it to produce a product that the company is being hush-hush about.

“That’s really what we’re trying to low-key,” Whiterock CEO Bob Meyer said Tuesday.

He would only say that it will be a chemical process, the details of which he’s trying to keep from his competitors.
