AURORA, ON – May 31, 2022 – Axiom Engineered Systems, LLC, a subsidiary of its Ontario-based parent company, has announced expansion plans in the USA, with Michigan as the newest location for servicing its customer base.
As part of its operations, Axiom has been supplying U.S. customers from its production facilities in Ontario and Mexico, but an influx of recent contracts requires the company to increase production capacity. By securing its first U.S. plastic injection molding facility, Axiom will be able to successfully supply its new and existing contracts.
The new Axiom operations facility will be located in Capac, Michigan – a location that was chosen over other competing U.S. sites – and will be Axiom’s first in the U.S. for housing its plastic injection manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, and administration.
The project is expected to generate a total capital investment of $13.3 million and create +200 jobs, supported by a $1.24 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. In addition to its current capabilities, Axiom Engineered Systems is designed to double in size, in terms of both sales and employment over the next three years.
“Working with the MEDC and local governments has helped to make this Capac, Michigan location possible, and we extend our gratitude for making this happen,” said Axiom Group President & CEO Perry Rizzo. “The Capac facility has already secured more than $50 million in new business and will begin operations within an 8-month timeframe.”
With plans for 3 additional U.S. facilities, Axiom’s new project will bring an excess of employment opportunities and advanced manufacturing jobs to the region, as well as the potential to bring additional investment growth in Michigan, positioning the state as a global leader in the future of mobility.
“Axiom will be bringing many jobs providing livable wages to an area of the state that has been lagging behind on wage growth,” said St. Clair County Economic Development Alliance CEO Dan Casey. “The Capac community is excited to welcome the company to the lower Thumb area.”
