3Con Corporation Establishes North American Headquarters In Wixom, Michigan

03/12/2015
3Con Corporation, doing business as 3Con USA, is establishing its North American headquarters in the City of Wixom, Michigan. The project is being supported by the Michigan Strategic Fund, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation reported. The project is expected to generate $6.4 million in new private investment and add 136 new jobs.

Doing business as 3Con USA, 3Con Corporation is a specialty equipment supplier to the automotive interior systems market. The company plans to establish its North American presence by initially leasing a building in Wixom to house its North American headquarters and R&D operations. Within five years the company plans to build its own permanent facility.

The project will generate a total capital investment of $6.4 million and create 136 jobs, resulting in a $550,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. In addition, the City of Wixom has offered property tax abatement in support of the project.

“3Con is extremely pleased with the ability of the state of Michigan to help bridge the gap for our organization. Both Michigan and 3Con will benefit from our location here as opposed to competing states,” said 3Con President of US Operations Raymond Costello. “The automotive talent pool and infrastructure cannot be compared to anywhere else in the nation. For those reasons, we have planted our permanent roots here in Oakland County and have begun hiring. Come on out and join our team!”

“3Con’s investment means Michigan residents will find good job opportunities that could well have gone to other states,” said MEDC CEO Steve Arwood. “3Con’s decision to establish its North American headquarters here underscores Michigan’s business-friendly environment and a manufacturing talent pool that can compete with any place in the world.”
