Manufacturer Consolidates, But Promises to Stay

By  | 

A manufacturer sinks a million dollars into Jackson to consolidate operations, but promises to stay.

The City of Jackson and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation approved millions of dollars in tax breaks to keep Eaton Corporation where it is. Governor Jennifer Granholm made the announcement Tuesday.

Meantime, Eaton Corporation still has a tentative plan to layoff 170 to 190 workers and close its Blackman Township facility.
