A business publication has included a group of West Michigan companies on its annual list of “Michigan’s Economic Bright Spots.”

Warren-based Corp! magazine features 10 employers in the region — and 78 in all — in the list.

The designation honors companies in four categories — enterprise, large, medium and small — that “have continued to thrive” in “economic growth, expansion and hiring Michigan’s brightest talent.”

The 2018 winners were honored at a ceremony and breakfast this month in Detroit at the International Banquet Center. The honorees were also featured in the publication’s June 21 digital edition, and they will be highlighted in its July/August print edition.

Corp! magazine is an invitation-only, bi-monthly print and digital business-to-business publication founded in 1988 and owned by Jennifer Kluge.
