Canada-Based Mara Technologies Plans Grand Blanc Township, Michigan, U.S. Headquarters
The company plans to manufacture electronic components for broadband telecommunications equipment at 10456 N. Holly Road. The operation will be Mara’s first in the U.S.
"The products we will be making will upgrade communications infrastructure and extend broadband communications to areas where it was previously unavailable," said Jeffrey S. Gary, Mara, USA vice president of operations. "We are proud of the improvements we are making to the country and to our Michigan employees."
The project is supported by a $1 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. In addition the Flint and Genesee Economic Alliance plans to help the company find candidates for the new positions.
“These business expansions will create 473 good-paying jobs and bring over $26 million of investment to Grand Blanc, Ypsilanti, and Monroe to help us keep growing our economy,” noted Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “By working together across the aisle, we have brought home record investments creating thousands of jobs in every region of our state. And we are building on our momentum, with over 135,000 jobs added to our economy year over year, low unemployment, and strong growth, especially in manufacturing.”
Mara Technologies USA Inc. is a subsidiary of Invotek Group Inc., an Ontario-headquartered provider and a global leader in electronics manufacturing services. The company is part of a global organization operating in Asia, Europe, and North America with more than 2,000 associates worldwide.
“Mara Technologies’ decision to open a location in Grand Blanc Township is an exciting development for Genesee County,” added Tyler Rossmaessler, executive director of Flint & Genesee Economic Alliance. “Our region has a robust talent pipeline to meet the company’s needs, and we look forward to supporting their continued growth in our community.”
