St. Clair County has seen continued investment in the automotive industry since the recession ended. “And every year that goes by, I think it’s going to slow down, but it really hasn’t,” Casey says. The county has six industrial automotive projects in the works for this year.
Casey can’t give many details, since most of the projects are still in the confidential phase. One that was recently announced is PJ Wallbank Springs, Inc., in Port Huron. They’ll be adding 68 new jobs to their current 90 positions by expanding their technical and research and development space.
