USA, Michigan-Based Merrill Technologies Group Receives $3M Grant
Merrill Technologies Group (MTG), a Saginaw, Michigan-based manufacturer specializing in automated machinery, has been awarded a $3m Clean Energy Advanced Manufacturing Grant.
The grant, which was made available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, will enable the company to diversify into the manufacture and assembly of large scale, advanced composite wind turbine blades and system components.
MTG, which serves customers in a wide range of industries through its four companies (Merrill Tool & Machine, Merrill Fabricators, Merrill Engineering & Integration, Merrill Aviation), expects to retain 12 jobs and create 113 jobs over the next two years.
Clean Energy Advanced Manufacturing grants offer Michigan-based small manufacturing companies, with 500 or fewer full-time or equivalent employees, financial assistance to diversify into high-growth, clean energy sectors and invest in advanced manufacturing of renewable energy systems and components.
