LANSING, Mich. Sen. Dale Zorn announced on Thursday that Syncreon will make key investments and create jobs in Monroe County thanks to a recently approved state incentive.

“While Michigan’s economy continues to grow and create jobs, the competition for new investment is tough,” said Zorn, R-Ida. “With the help of this incentive, Michigan was chosen over competing states for this expansion project — creating 100 jobs, providing new opportunities for local workers and boosting the local economy.”

Syncreon is a global provider of specialized logistics and supply chain solutions to a broad and diverse customer base comprised of multinational and Fortune 500 companies, primarily in the technology and automotive industries.

The company recently negotiated a new contract with a major customer and plans to expand its facilities in Monroe County.

As a result, the Michigan Strategic Fund approved a $430,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant to Syncreon to support the project.

“The local community has offered to help host job fairs in support of the project,” Zorn said. “I applaud state, local and Syncreon officials for working together to make this expansion and new jobs a reality.”
