Governor Gretchen Whitmer joined with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation to announce dozens of new jobs coming to Northern Michigan.
Two projects in the area are expected to generate $7.7 million and 68 new jobs.
Rexair is expanding their facility in Cadillac, adding new injection molding machines and nine jobs.
The project is supported by a $48,000 grant from the state.
American Recreational Products has outgrown their facility in Owosso and plans to move to an existing facility in Fenton.
They’re adding a new fiberglass project line and 59 jobs.
The project is supported by a $250,000 grant.
Both companies chose Michigan over competing states in part because of grants from the Michigan Strategic Fund.
