“Due to the EDC’s intense and sincere interest in our business, we were able to secure a tax-exempt revenue bond to help us acquire six acres of land and an existing manufacturing facility in Madison Heights, Michigan. The almost $2.9 million project also included the rehabilitation of the building and the purchase and installation of machinery. With our business move and expansion, we know we are positioned for long-term growth in sales and new jobs.”
