CW Bearing USA, Inc. announced today that it was breaking ground on a new North American Center for Design, Sales and Advanced Manufacturing to be located at 15200 Technology Drive, Northville Township, Michigan.
The new 50,000 square foot development project in Northville will generate a total capital investment of $25.9 million, while creating 125 jobs, resulting in a $550,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant from the state.
“CW Bearing and all of its employees want to thank the state of Michigan for this grant and the support in helping us to make this project a reality,” said Jay Click, director of sales, CW Bearing USA. “This facility, located near the heart of the North American auto industry, will allow us to better support our ‘Customer First’ philosophy by increasing both our global manufacturing and technical capabilities, allowing us to bring more value and versatility to our growing customers.”
“CW Bearing’s decision to locate its U.S. headquarters in southeast Michigan signals to corporate leaders across the globe (Michigan) offers great opportunities for their business expansion,” Governor Rick Snyder said in a recent interview upon returning from an eight-day investment mission to China.
Construction is expected to commence immediately with completion targeted for late 2016.
