oldsgt.: You are referring to the "Basic Magnesium, Inc.". They were a WW II Defense Contractor taking magnesium ore from the Three Kids Mine just to the East and refining it into usable forms. The housing area was called "Victory Village" and it is no longer in existence. The name survives in several forms, one of which is a large multistory apartment complex in approximately the same location.
The BMI Plant complex is now occupied by several large firms making various products. The largest is "Titanium Metals Inc" which reduces titanium ores down to titanium ingots which are shipped to titanium products manufacturers all over the world. The other firms are mostly chemical companies refining chemical products.
