Eaton Expands Marshall-Southfield-Canton Township, Michigan, Operations

Intelligent power management company Eaton is expanding in Marshall, Southfield, and Canton Township, Michigan. The $20 million project is expected to create 100 jobs.

The expansion will include a new lab for conducting development, environmental, validation, and durability testing for a wide range of EV components, including power electronics, battery protection systems, power connections, inverters, converters, and power distribution systems, and the remodeling of office space.

“Michigan is a global leader in the future of mobility and high-tech innovation, and we are very pleased to receive funding from the state on this project. Support from the grant will allow us to accelerate plans to expand our eMobility capabilities within Michigan,” said Mark Schneider, president, eMobility at Eaton. “It is a testament to the importance of the state to the automotive industry that it was chosen for the project over competing sites in the U.S. and abroad.”

The project is being supported with a $600,000 Jobs Ready Michigan Program performance-based grant that will assist with training for the new positions.

“The decision by Eaton to expand in three locations in Michigan underscores our state’s leadership in future mobility and high-tech innovation, as well as the strength of our business climate and talented workforce,” noted?MEDC Senior Vice President of Regional Prosperity Matt McCauley. “This project is a win for Marshall, Southeast Michigan and for the entire state. We are grateful to Governor Whitmer, legislators from both parties, and local officials for their continued support for our programs that help make announcements like today’s possible. We appreciate the efforts of our local partners in supporting this effort and will continue working to win projects, invest in places and support our people as we encourage businesses of all sizes to make it in Michigan.”

Eaton Corporation plc is an American-Irish multinational power management company, founded in the U.S. with global headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, and a secondary administrative center in Beachwood, Ohio.

“Eaton has a long history with Marshall and has continued to be an outstanding community partner with their ongoing financial support for community events and Marshall Public Schools,” added Marshall Area Economic Development Alliance CEO James Durian. “We are excited that they are expanding again locally and creating new jobs and investments in the area of electrification research and e-Mobility.”
