Michigan Innovation on Display at NAIAS in Detroit

Adaptive Materials in Ann Arbor, Gentex in Zeeland and Tellurex in Traverse City are just a few of the growing automotive research and development (R & D) companies in Michigan that will be showcased by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) when it opens to the public in Detroit on January 13th.

Michigan-made products like automatic dimming mirrors, tire pressure monitoring systems, hot and cold cup holders, electric cars, fuel cells and robotics will be on display. Additional murals highlight the multitude of R&D companies in Michigan, as well as a timeline of Michigan achievements in alternative energy.

To view the 2,000 square foot MEDC exhibit and Michigan success stories at the 2007 NAIAS, visit Michigan Hall in the lower level of the COBO Conference/Exhibition Center.

The MEDC, a partnership between the state and local communities, promotes smart economic growth by developing strategies and providing services to create and retain good jobs and a high quality of life. For more information on the MEDC, visit www.michigan.org
