Mich. Manufacturing Technology Center gets boost
PLYMOUTH, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center is getting a more than $1.1 million boost from the federal government.
U.S. Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin of Michigan recently announced the Department of Commerce grant for the Plymouth-based center. Its aim is to help small- and medium-sized manufacturers throughout the state expand and create new high-tech jobs.
The center also has offices in Grand Rapids, Marquette, Saginaw, and Traverse City.
The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center is the Michigan affiliate of the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership.
