Michigan governor: German company plans investment
LANSING, MI – Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm has returned from an international trade trip with the announcement that a German battery technology company plans to search for a
manufacturing location on the west side of the state.
Granholm's office said Thursday fortu PowerCell soon will begin a site search pending approval of state and local tax incentives.
The company would build a battery pack manufacturing facility.
Granholm met with company officials during a 48-hour trade trip to Germany and Belgium this week.
The Democratic governor also met with Belgium-based Hansen Transmissions, a producer of wind energy gearboxes, to promote Michigan as a possible location for a service and repair facility.
