Canton, Michigan, got some great news last week when Governor Snyder announced that voxeljet, a leading provider of 3-D printers, has chosen Canton to be the home of the company’s first U.S. facility.
The company’s expansion is expected to come online in the third quarter of this year and will create 15 to 20 direct high-tech local manufacturing jobs during the first three years of the project.
The news came during Governor Snyder’s investment mission to Italy and Germany where he was meeting with business leaders to encourage their companies to grow and expand in Michigan.
“The marketplace today is global,” Governor Snyder said. “To stay competitive, we must be aggressive in reaching out to world-class companies and continue our push that creates more and better jobs for Michiganders.”
Italian and German companies play an important role in the Michigan economy. Today there are 72,000 Michiganders are employed by German- and Italian-owned companies operating in the state.
