Detroit Diesel expanding, adding jobs

Jason Cannon August 2, 2013

Detroit Diesel Corp. says it plans to invest upwards of $77 million and create 50 jobs with an expansion at its Redford Township, Mich. plant.

Detroit Diesel says the expansion was needed in order to produce an asymmetric turbocharger, as well as truck transmission assemblies, at the Michigan plant when production was slated for the U.S. over a sister facility in Mexico.

The project received a $250,000 Business Development Program grant from the Michigan Strategic Fund Wednesday. The grant is in addition to a 12-year property tax abatement (valued at $6.6 million) Redford Township had already offered the Daimler subsidiary.
