Construction of SAPA Transmission’s US production plant and headquarters began this fall in Shelby Township, Michigan.

The Shelby site was chosen for its proximity to SAPA’s largest customers including BAE Systems, General Dynamics Corp., and the Center for Engineering and Development of Automotive Tank Investigation of the United States Army. The company also chose the location for its high-quality engineering workforce and flexible industrial capabilities.

 “Our goal is to invest 40.1 million dollars in Michigan, creating 223 new jobs in engineering, manufacturing and administration in the next five years.” Stated vice president of SAPA Transmission Deniz Balta.

The project was awarded a $ 2.676 million grant by the Michigan Strategic Fund.
