Standing alone, Hummer to land in SE Michigan

Hummer, as part of a Chinese company, plans to invest up to $9.4 million in a new headquarters located either in Detroit or Auburn Hills, state records showed Tuesday, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The Michigan Economic Growth Authority approved $20.6 million in state tax credits Tuesday for Hummer LLC’s project, beating out sites in Tennessee and South Carolina, the paper said. General Motors is working to sell the Hummer division to China’s Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Co., as part of its restructuring plan, the Free Press noted.

The tax credits are contingent upon the closing of the Hummer sale. Hummer spokesman Nick Richards declined to say where the facility might be located. A final decision is expected by Oct. 31, according to the Michigan Economic Development Corp., the Free Press said.

The headquarters is expected to house staff working on design, engineering finance, purchasing, sales, service and marketing, the paper said. The project is expected to create 300 direct jobs and about 640 indirect jobs, the story said. (Detroit Free Press)
