Mersen USA has announced plans to expand manufacturing in Bay City and Greenville, Michigan. The advanced materials manufacturer will invest $81.2 million into the project, creating 115 new jobs in the process. Mersen will add four new buildings to its Bay City campus for additional manufacturing space. The Greenville facility will have its main production area increased, and new machinery and equipment will be added to both plants. The company will receive a $1 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant to aid in the development.

In a recent quote, Governor Gretchen Whitmer said, “Mersen USA is driving $81 million of investment and creating 115 good jobs in Bay City and Greenville, underscoring our leadership in advanced manufacturing and future mobility and builds on our economic momentum. Michigan was chosen for these expansions over Tennessee because of our talented workforce and strength in the future of mobility and the semiconductor supply chain. Let’s keep competing to win projects that bring home good-paying, high-skill jobs that will support our people and invest in the places we call home. Together, we can continue to send a clear message that everyone is welcome to make it in Michigan.”
