May 6, 2015
It’s no secret that Michigan’s economy has made a remarkable comeback, and that means more and better jobs and a brighter future for all Michiganders.
EBW Electronics in Holland is the latest employer to invest in yet another expansion—and that’s good news for Michigan’s reinvented economy. Today, Governor Snyder joined EBW Electronics to celebrate a ribbon-cutting ceremony of the new expansion.
“Companies like EBW Electronics are setting the bar high in terms of what Michigan businesses are capable of,” the governor said. “Michigan employers continue to create more and better jobs, and now we are the Comeback State.”
EBW Electronics, a Michigan-based company that manufactures LED circuit boards for automotive suppliers, manufacturers and other industries around the world, was established in 1992. This new, 36,000 square-foot expansion doubles the size of EBW’s current facility and ushers in more opportunities for high-skilled workers in STEM fields.
Filling high-demand, competitive jobs in STEM-related fields is a big priority for Governor Snyder, and EBW’s latest expansion bolsters Michigan’s impressive comeback and ongoing reinvention. Last year alone, EBW created nearly 50 new jobs, and they’re expected to create even more positions for skilled workers as a result of this new expansion.
Michigan employers have created nearly 400,000 new private sector jobs since December 2010, and the state's unemployment rate is at its lowest point since 2001.
