Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced Monday economic development grants for RV manufacturers Cruiser RV and Heartland Recreational Vehicles in support of two new manufacturing campuses in Sturgis, Mich. The projects are expected to support 450 new jobs in St. Joseph County, Sturgis Journal reported.
The projects, identified as Project White and Project Black, were announced in March by the city of Sturgis, with state stipulations preventing details from being released as part of a due diligence process.
One of the factories will be located in Dresser Industrial Park, while the other will be located in the industrial park north of the Kirsch airport.
“Michigan’s business climate and highly-skilled manufacturing workforce are creating an environment where businesses like Heartland RV and Cruiser RV can thrive and grow, creating good jobs in St. Joseph County,” Whitmer said. “This is great news for workers, their families and our economy as we continue our economic jumpstart and put Michigan back to work. With the help of companies like Cruiser RV and Heartland RV, we can build back our state’s economy stronger than ever.”
