WALKER, Mich. (WZZM) -- A Vermont-based defense contractor plans to bring 120 new jobs and $12.3 million in new investment to Walker when it relocates to the area, according to economic development group the Right Place.
The Right Place announced Wednesday that Plasan North America's corporate office, research and development, and production resources will be moving into 3236 Wilson Dr. NW. The company's leased space there will be near its sister company, Plasan Carbon Composites.
A Michigan Works! worker training program, local tax abatements from the City of Walker, and a performance-based grant through the Michigan Business Development Program helped the Right Place and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation encourage Plasan North America to choose Walker over competing locations in Vermont, Georgia, Texas, and Tennessee, according to a statement.
