Two Men And A Truck International will invest $3.9 million during the next 18 months to expand its world headquarters in Lansing, Michigan, creating 125 jobs locally, over the next five years. In addition, the firm said it will hire 7,000 new staffers nationally, during the next half-decade.
The firm’s Chief Executive Officer, Brig Sorber, said his decision to keep the company's headquarters in Lansing, on Belle Chase Way in Delhi Township, was an easy one. It is the place he and his family have called home his entire life. "Our roots are here and they are deep. I'm so proud to announce we will expand upon what we've already built." Sorber said, "With every passing day, the business climate in Michigan grows stronger and stronger, and I'm happy our company is part of that progress through the addition of more jobs to the Lansing area. We thank Governor Snyder, the MEDC, LEAP and Delhi Township for their critical support and partnership during our decision making process."
Gov. Rick Snyder said the Michigan Economic Development Corporation will provide an incentive of $355,000, which will be matched by $5,000 from Delhi Township.
"LEAP is very pleased to package this deal on behalf of the region that enables the international headquarters of Two Men And A Truck to substantially expand its operations right here," said Bob Trezise, president and CEO of Lansing Economic Area Partnership. "Adding 125 headquarter jobs and 7,000 jobs nationally, all emanating from a home-grown firm like this, again shows that the Lansing region is leading the state in economic development activity."
