Multiple projects in Detroit are expected to boost the city's economic profile while creating jobs. Among the projects that are slated to come to Detroit, noted Crain's Detroit Business, one example is Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing North America Inc. The company will set up a facility in the city, bringing more than 30 million dollars and 250 new jobs in the city.
Another prominent example of the economic boost Detroit will gain from these initiatives is the Comprehensive Logistics Co. Inc. expansion in Detroit, as the company is expected to construct a new facility, therefore creating 240 jobs. The company's facility will be used to help buttress the services of the supply chain of Ford's Dearborn truck plant, according to the source.
"These new investments in Southeast Michigan are strong additions that will revitalize communities and bring new jobs for our residents," said Gov. Rick Snyder, according to Crain's Detroit Business.
Likewise, the Business Facilities annual rankings report found that Michigan is an excellent place for both infrastructure and automotive manufacturing strength. Michigan ranked 8 out of 10 in the former category, joined by other states like Texas, Florida and Utah. Michigan ranked even higher in the automotive manufacturing strength category, attaining sixth out of 10.
Manufacturing recruiters interested in areas of the U.S. with a climate conducive to growth will find this in Detroit.
