Plastic Trim International Expands Baldwin Township, Michigan, Plant

Plastic Trim International, a subsidiary of MINTH Group US Holdings, Inc., a China-based manufacturer, plans to expand its manufacturing plant in Baldwin Township, Michigan. The 42,000 square foot, $16.1 million investment is expected to create 210 new jobs.

Established in 1992 and acquired by the MINTH Group in 2007, Plastic Trim’s Baldwin Township plant manufactures trim, molding, and decorative auto parts. The investment will cover technology upgrades at the company's manufacturing facility.

According to the Michigan Strategic Fund, the company is experiencing increasing demand and plans to expand its Baldwin Township plant. The Tawas City logistics center will also have some growth due to the increased production in Baldwin Township.

The project resulted in a $1,575,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. Since the majority of the investment will take place in Baldwin Township, the township has offered a 50-percent tax abatement in support of the project.

In addition, “Michigan Works! Region 7B Consortium is excited to partner with MINTH to increase the skills of their current workforce and train new hires in the skilled trades. This project will have a significant impact on the community," said Executive Director Mark Berdan.
