Blissfield Manufacturing to expand, add 73 jobs

Blissfield Manufacturing has plans to expand its primary location by 73 jobs over the next three years, and potentially add $1.5 million in new equipment. The company qualified for state and local business incentives that will help them complete the expansion.

The additional jobs come not only from planned growth, but also as a result of the company's decision to close its Jay Products facility in Portland, IN. The production operations at Jay Products are currently being transferred to Blissfield, MI.

"As a family-owned business, we sincerely regret having to close our facility in Portland, IN. Decisions such as this are not made lightly; we value the people who have worked at Jay Products and have given so much. Yet, the redesign of GM's power steering system, resulting in the obsolescence of Blissfield's power steering cooler, made the decision to consolidate plants the best direction for the company's future," explained Pat Farver, CEO and president. "With new business planned on the horizon, Blissfield Manufacturing is readying itself to be in a strong position to support the needs of its customers in the CO2, automotive and environmental markets. Moving forward, we will continue to offer the people of Lenawee a great place to work, and continue offering our customers quality products."
