Manufacturer investing $1.8M in operations
A maker of cast and machined components is investing $1.8 million and creating 27 jobs in the region via expansions.
Falcon Lakeside Manufacturing is expanding operations at its Stevensville facility, at 4999 Advance Way, and expanding into a second plant in Eau Claire, Michigan.
Falcon Lakeside Manufacturing chose to expand into Eau Claire over a competing site in Indiana.
As such, the company was awarded a $135,000 performance-based grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s Michigan Strategic Fund.
Additionally, the Benton Harbor-based economic development nonprofit Cornerstone Alliance has offered to provide support for the project in the form of staff time.
“Falcon Lakeside embodies the success of the Berrien County businesses that work hard for their clients to produce a world-class product,” said Greg Vaughn, COO, Cornerstone Alliance.
Vaughn said Cornerstone Alliance worked with the company to "secure the right building" and "walked them through" the MEDC process to be eligible for incentives, calling the moves "important steps to make this expansion a reality.”
Falcon Lakeside Manufacturing
Established in 2001 following the consolidation of Falcon Strategies and Lakeside Manufacturing, Falcon Lakeside Manufacturing makes cast and machined products with metallurgical, mechanical, design and other functional requirements. It serves several industries, including automotive.
The company currently employs 28 people.
