Governor Granholm Announces More Than 17,300 New Jobs for Michigan
February 25, 2010
The projects include a new research and development facility in Northville Township that will supply materials for lithium-ion battery cells, the re-launch of a facility in Cadillac that manufactures boats, and the expansion in Perry Township of a high-tech firm that provides automotive engineering and test development services.
"Companies are choosing to invest and grow in Michigan because we are a great state in which to do business," Granholm said. "From solar shingles and advanced batteries to boats and scrap-tire recycling, we are creating a diversified economy where firms across a wide spectrum of industries are finding success and growing new jobs."
The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), a partnership between the state and local communities, promotes smart economic growth by developing strategies and providing services to create and retain good jobs and a high quality of life.
