Leaders with the Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC) and West Michigan Works! agency announced today the state has surpassed Michigan’s first-year campaign goal of recruiting and upskilling at least 1,000 workers to pursue new ready-to-hire production roles in tech-forward industries like electric vehicle battery manufacturing.

The MEDC’s recruitment campaign was developed with West Michigan Works! and leading Michigan businesses in EV/mobility, including Shape Corp. in Grand Haven, which has emerged as one of the state’s champions in hiring EV/mobility industry-related workers.
