• Grants awarded to 23 small manufacturers throughout Michigan to help adopt Industry 4.0 technologies

    MEDC’s Industry 4.0 Technology Implementation Grant program provides companies with 50 percent reimbursement for qualifying 4.0 technology implementation costs

    LANSING, Mich. – Twenty-three small manufacturers around Michigan have been awarded a total of nearly $500,000 to help them adopt Industry 4.0 technologies, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation announced today. The funds are from the first round of awards as part of the $3 million Industry 4.0 Technology Implementation Grant program.

    Grants will be reimbursement-based and will cover up to 50 percent of eligible technologies, including additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, robotics and automation, and more. The amount of increased revenue as a result of implementing these technologies will be approximately $29.9 million, with an estimated 93 jobs created and 283 jobs retained.

    “Michigan has always been ahead of the curve, from putting the wheels on wheels to Motown and creating the snowboard among other innovations. These grants are yet another way that we demonstrate our innovation spirit as we help prepare manufacturers to adopt new and innovative technologies for the future,” said Quentin L. Messer, Jr., CEO of MEDC and President and Chair of the MSF Board. “By working with Automation Alley, the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center, our local partners, and communities, we are strengthening advanced manufacturing and entrepreneurship, thereby creating jobs in this innovative sector for future generations of Michiganders.”

    In April, the Michigan Strategic Fund approved $3 million in awards for six nonprofit organizations to administer the implementation grants statewide. In addition, these organizations were tasked with promoting existing statewide resources to support Michigan small manufacturers with Industry 4.0 awareness and preparedness.
