South Korea-Based Daejin Advanced Materials USA Plans Adrian, Michigan, Operations

Daejin Advanced Materials USA, Inc., a subsidiary of South Korean firm Daejin Advanced Materials, a company that researches and manufactures special polymers for batteries, plans to establish North American operations in Adrian, Michigan. The $12.3 million project is expected to create 111 jobs.

Daejin plans to renovate an existing facility where it will further develop and produce materials that support EV battery cells. The location will support existing companies already located in the Midwest, allowing Daejin to keep on pace to meet the tight deadlines of its clients.

“We are incredibly excited to see new electric vehicle related projects realize the benefits of a Lenawee County facility,” said Lenawee Now Executive Director Jim Van Doren. “We heartily welcome Daejin Advanced Materials to our community and Lenawee Now is offering the local support for this project by providing Daejin Advanced Materials with assistance in recruiting their staff by promoting the job openings through all of our social media platforms and hosting job fairs in conjunction with Michigan Works Southeast.”

The project is being supported by a $500,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. The city of Adrian is engaged with MEDC’s RRC program and is a Michigan Main Street Select Level community.

Daejin Advanced Materials is a material parts and equipment company that strives to grow and develop with all employees to improve company competitiveness and employee life balance. The company supplies eco-friendly, lithium-ion secondary batteries and materials and parts for electric vehicles.
