LANSING — KUKA Systems North America is expanding its operations in Clinton Charter Township with support from the Michigan Strategic Fund, the Michigan Economic Development Corp. announced today. The project expected to generate nearly $14.4 million in investment and create more than 100 jobs.
“KUKA Systems is a global leader serving diverse industries such as automotive, aerospace and alternative energy, and this expansion in Clinton Township will further strengthen its Michigan presence,” says MEDC Chief Executive Officer Steve Arwood.
Clinton Charter Township officials have offered support to the project in the form of property tax abatement. Company officials also worked with the Macomb County to prepare a compelling application for the grants. Michigan Works!, operated locally by the Macomb-St. Clair Workforce Development Board, Inc. offered its services to find and screen candidates for the new jobs created by the company’s expansion.
