The Northern Lakes Economic Alliance, a partner of Michigan State University Extension, is assisting the company with the negotiations and coordination with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), Bear Creek Township and Emmet County related to this project. Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) recently approved an $180,000 incentive to assist them with this expansion.
