Amway is investing $20 million in an expansion of a manufacturing facility in Ada Township, Michigan, the Grand Rapids Press reports. Township trustees have already approved a primary step in tax abatements towards the project.
The company will invest in a 55-foot high addition for protein drink powder equipment. It will also convert some existing warehouse space to manufacturing use. Amway will also create 74 jobs at the plant when it moves operations from a California facility to Ada Township.
If the township approves the tax abatements, Amway could save up to $190,000 in property taxes in the expansion's first year.
