Michigan’s aggressive efforts mean that 17 of the global industry’s best-practice companies are or will soon be operating here. Their total investment of $5.8 billion, these companies will generate more than 63,000 new jobs in Michigan. No place in the U.S., Canada or Mexico can match Michigan’s growth in this sector.
