DETROIT (AP) -- A
company that makes high-strength, laser-welded steel blanks for the auto
industry will mark the grand opening of its $83 million facility in Detroit.
Mayor Mike Duggan
and business leaders are expected to attend the Feb. 26 event at
ArcelorMittal Tailored Blanks Detroit.
313,000-square-foot facility is in Detroit’s Interstate-94 Industrial Park
on the city’s east side. The 186-acre industrial park is a prime site for
new manufacturing operations in Detroit.
The company says 85
employees currently work at the site and another 40 jobs are expected to be
added over the next five years.
Tailored Blanks is a subsidiary of steel and mining company ArcelorMittal.
The company says the Detroit facility is ArcelorMittal’s first wholly-owned
manufacturing site in Michigan.
