Companies to Expand Into Michigan

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Two companies planning to invest up to $28.6 million in Michigan are getting support for expansion efforts from the state.

The Michigan Economic Development Corp. this week announced that Circuit Controls Corp. and North American Lighting Inc. are getting incentives approved by the Michigan Strategic Fund. The state says the expansions could mean 112 new Michigan jobs.

Circuit Controls makes automotive electrical terminals and is a subsidiary of Tokyo-based Yazaki Corp. The company is planning to expand its manufacturing facility in Emmet County's Bear Creek Township as part of an effort to support new business.

Illinois-based North American Lighting makes automotive lighting equipment. The company has an engineering and sales facility in Michigan, and it plans to lease a larger facility and expand engineering and sales operations in Farmington Hills.
