Ellington WF, LLC is one of three companies approved for incentives by the
Michigan Strategic Fund
through the Michigan Business Development and Community Revitalization Programs to support their expansions in the state.
A $1 million Community Revitalization Program Performance based grant was awarded to Ellington WF, LLC to offset costs for site preparation and construction of the new Whole Foods
building in Detroit. This project is expected to create 80 permanent jobs, with a total capital investment of up to $14.9 million.
The other two companies, Altronics Energy
, LLC and FIAMM Technologies
, LLC were awarded incentives to expand their respective operations in Cadillac and Byron Township.
"These three companies are demonstrating that Michigan can compete with any state in the country as a great place to grow a business," said Michael A. Finney, MEDC President and CEO. "These new investments show once more Michigan’s highly competitive business climate and tremendous workforce capabilities mean real opportunities for leading edge companies."
All three projects are expected to add a total of 201 new jobs in Michigan.
