Aerospace Company Planning $3.7 Million Expansion, 282 New Jobs

Warren. The project will create 282 new jobs, including 125 directly by the company. Assistance offered through the Michigan Economic Development Corporation helped convince the company to grow in Michigan instead of a competing site in Kansas.

Our business-friendly climate and talented workforce are convincing companies like Gentz to locate and invest in Michigan

An economic analysis conducted by the MEDC estimates that increased economic activity created by the expansion will generate an additional 157 indirect Michigan jobs, in addition to the 125 created directly by the company. The project is expected to generate more than $103 million in personal income for Michigan workers over the life of the tax credit.

The Gentz expansion is one of five economic development projects the Governor announced today. In all, they are expected to create and retain a total of 1,790 Michigan jobs.
