Inergy Builds New Huron Township Facility and Brings 240 Jobs
A groundbreaking ceremony held July 21 created excitement for the Huron Township community and especially the Local Development Finance Authority who worked diligently to bring the business to its district.
The ground breaking took place on June 21, 2011.
“We are pleased to welcome Inergy to Huron Township,” said Township Supervisor Elke Doom. “Our Local Development Finance Authority board worked tirelessly to assist Inergy with their new facility in our township. It’s a great partnership.”
The company explored multiple locations in the state to expand but chose Huron Township and utilized the critical financial resources of the LDFA to finance and construct several key components of the manufacturing facility.
“Location, a cooperative LDFA, and a developed and mature infrastructure were among the reasons Inergy chose Huron Township. I’m very excited about this new development coming to the beautiful township of Huron. This represents a trend in attracting quality developments to our community” said R.P. Lilly, chairman of the Local Development Finance Authority (LDFA).
Inergy will make fuel systems in the new facility. Currently, the parts are made at a plant in Milan.
Inergy was able to create a partnership for their project between the LDFA, Huron Township, and the Wayne County Edge. I am very excited that Plastic Omnium Auto Inergy, whose parent company has automotive operations around the globe, has selected Huron Township and Wayne county as their location” said Trustee R.P. Lilly, LDFA chair. “This development reaffirms the strength of southeast Michigan and its role as the center for US automotive investment. Wayne County and Huron Township also partner in the Aerotropolis authority, itself devoted to economic development in the region” said Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano.
Plastic Omnium Auto Inergy has a production base in North America, including plants in Adrian Michigan, Anderson South Carolina and Ramos Mexico. The company primarily supplies Ford, General Motors, Hyundai, Nissan and Chrysler. The ribbon cutting for the planned Huron Township facility is expected spring 2012.
