Silfex will host a career fair Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sinclair College in building 12, at the Great Hall, 444 W. 3rd Street, Dayton.

Silfex is hiring qualified CNC and 5-axis machinists to make state-of-the-art silicon components used to create high-technology devices, the Dayton Development Coalition said in an announcement.

Silfex was founded in Preble County and builds silicon components for everything from computer processors to cell phones to cars. The firm also grows silicon crystals at its existing plant in Eaton and will perform similar functions in Springfield.

The company is converting the 350,000-square-foot warehouse near the Prime Ohio Industrial Park in Springfield into a high-tech manufacturing plant that makes silicon products for a variety of markets.

The company has pledged to create more than 400 jobs over the next several years.
