Agape Plastics Plans $14 Million Expansion In Tallmadge Charter Township, Michigan.
As a result, the project has been awarded a $300,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. In addition, Tallmadge Charter Township has offered support to the project in the form of a property tax abatement. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality supported the project by approving the relocation of a DEQ conservation easement and providing assistance with the conservation easement mitigation process.
“The decision of Agape Plastics to expand further in Tallmadge Charter Township demonstrates Michigan’s business-friendly environment and talented workforce. It is thanks to many public and private partners that this project is taking place, and we are pleased to support that collaboration,” said Michigan Economic Development Corporation CEO Steve Arwood. “This investment will provide excellent employment opportunities for Michigan residents and will create a long-term positive impact on the local economy.”
“Agape Plastics, Inc. has been a member of the Ottawa County community for more than three decades, employing our family members and neighbors. This is an example of a productive use of economic development dollars to maximize community benefits,” said Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof. “Agape Plastics will bring over 50 new jobs to Ottawa County for our hardworking Michiganders. This partnership among the state, township and private industry will be a significant benefit for West Michigan.”
