Governor Whitmer Awards Infrastructure Grants to Support Two Businesses and 261 Jobs in Washtenaw and Wayne Counties 
The infrastructure grants helped land the two companies in Michigan over competing sites out of state
LANSING, Mich. — Today, Governor Whitmer awarded two grants that will make infrastructure upgrades to support economic development projects at two businesses and support a total of 261 new and existing jobs in Wayne and Washtenaw counties. The grants will help fund infrastructure improvements necessary to accommodate increased commercial truck traffic at the Pak-Rite facility in Ecorse and at Sartorius BioAnalytical Industries’ new facility in Ann Arbor. 
“These grants supporting 261 jobs in Wayne and Washtenaw will help us grow our economy, rebuild our infrastructure, and boost economic opportunity for Michiganders in every community,” said Governor Whitmer. “Reliable infrastructure is critical for Michiganders going to work, dropping their kids off at school, and running errands, but it is also critical for small businesses moving products and personnel across Michigan. Today’s investment will ease the flow of commercial truck traffic and help Pak-Rite in Ecorse and Sartorius BioAnalytical Industries in Ann Arbor continue growing and investing in Michigan. I will work with anyone to invest in our infrastructure and advance our economic development so we can continue moving Michigan forward.”
The state Transportation Economic Development Fund (TEDF) grant helps finance highway, road and street projects that are critical to the movement of people and products, and getting workers to their jobs, materials to growers and manufacturers, and finished goods to consumers.
