LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Judy Emmons on Wednesday congratulated Wright Plastic Products for receiving a grant from the Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF) that will help them make important investments in its Sheridan facility.
“This performance-based grant will help attract more than $5 million in private investment in Michigan and create 40 jobs, which is great news for the people of Sheridan and the entire state,” said Emmons, R-Sheridan. I applaud the Wright Plastic Products Company and local officials for working together to create jobs in Michigan by making this expansion a reality. It is an illustration of the impact we can have in improving our state through teamwork.”
Wright Plastic Products provides a variety of custom plastic parts in the automotive, recreational vehicle, defense and consumer markets.
As a result of its planned $5.8 million expansions to facilities in St. Clair and Sheridan, the company was awarded a $160,000 Michigan Business Development Program (MBDP) grant. The company will add three multiple-shot injection molding machines to each facility.
“Michigan was chosen over a competing site in Tennessee for this investment,” Emmons said. “With this grant, we are attracting new jobs and opportunities while also getting a more than 3,000 percent return on our investment.”
