Manufacturer investing $10M in operation
A diversified manufacturer in the region is planning to invest $10 million in its operation.
Arconic plans to invest in high-tech machinery and equipment at its Whitehall facility, which focuses on casting super-alloy airfoils for aero engines and industrial gas turbines, according to the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, or MEDC, last week.
The project is expected to create 38 jobs over the next several years.
Michigan was chosen over competing sites in multiple states.
“Arconic’s expansion here rather than in another state means good jobs for Michigan residents and underscores the strength of the state’s aerospace sector,” said Jeff Mason, CEO, MEDC.
“The decision by Arconic to invest in Whitehall offers further evidence our commitment to helping companies grow and generate new jobs for our residents.”
The City of Whitehall is also waiving permitting fees in support of the project.
