The Michigan Financial Growth Corp. introduced that an organization is planning to speculate $25 million to assemble a brand new facility in Battle Creek, creating 91 jobs.
In accordance with a information launch, Viking-Cives, a full-line truck gear firm and one of many largest snow and ice management gear producers in North America, is planning to construct a producing store, warehouse and set up bay as a part of its Midwest growth. Battle Creek was chosen over competing websites in Ontario and Indiana.
The $25 million manufacturing facility might be positioned at 1405 Shiga Drive within the Fort Custer Industrial Park and would be the firm’s first website in Michigan. The venture is supported by $755,300 from the Michigan Enterprise Growth Program performance-based grant. Town of Battle Creek has provided a 50% tax abatement for the venture.
A consultant from Viking-Cives declined touch upon Friday.
Positions on the manufacturing facility will embrace mechanical engineers, materials handlers, machine operators, format fitters, welders, painters and workplace positions.
“As a snowplow producer, Viking-Cives might be a terrific praise to Battle Creek’s current manufacturing base,” Battle Creek Limitless President and CEO Joe Sobieralski stated in a launch. “That is an revolutionary firm with a terrific monitor report. And as an employee-owned firm, they are going to provide glorious alternatives for our native workforce. We’re proud that they’ve chosen Battle Creek as the location of the latest manufacturing facility.”
