WAXAHACHIE (AP) - A North Texas site once meant to host the superconducting super collider will be the new home for a chemical plant that burned last fall.

Magnablend Inc. on Tuesday announced the purchase of the property near Waxahachie, about 30 miles south of Dallas.

Repairs must first be done at the 135-acre super collider site, which has had theft and vandalism since the government killed the physics program in 1993 amid budget concerns.

Magnablend’s plant went up in flames Oct. 3 in a massive fire that forced the evacuation of about 1,000 Waxahachie residents.

Magnablend, which specializes in custom chemical manufacturing, blending and packaging, also has facilities in Pennsylvania, Wyoming and North Dakota.
