Solution : US KDK established a facility at Moses Lake in 1995. They have recently completed an $80 million expansion. The facility is a massive electric power user and takes advantage of the lowest electric power rates in the nation, and it utilizes the Foreign Trade Zone #203 for import/export. Of considerable importance to the Japanese-owned facility is the fact that several large Japanese-owned firms are located in Moses Lake including Atama Chemical, Inflation Systems, Komatsu Material (ASIMI) and Japan Airlines. This concentration of Japanese industry provides a valuable cultural familiarity for other Japanese companies and employees. US KDK utilizes the massive fiber optic infrastructure in Moses Lake to maintain real-time communication with their parent company in Japan to preserve their global competitiveness.. ASPI assisted US KDK on their recent expansion with the procurement of a US EDA grant for industrial wastewater treatment facilities (See letter attached).
