Two manufacturers are interested in building plants on 130 acres off Route 12 and Wyman Road in northwestern Keene.

Dugan, president of Keene Industrial Development Corp. Dugan declined to name the firms until both deals are sealed, but said both are “clean manufacturers” that would cause only light truck traffic.
