LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Judy Emmons on Thursday congratulated West Michigan Compounding for receiving a grant from the Michigan Strategic Fund that will help them make important investments in its Greenville facility.

“This performance-based grant will help attract more than $6 million in private investment in Michigan and create 33 jobs, which is great news for the people of Greenville and the entire state,” said Emmons, R-Sheridan. “I applaud West Michigan Compounding, local and state officials for working together to create more good jobs here in Michigan.”

West Michigan Compounding compounds and recycles plastic scrap to help customers achieve plastic raw material cost savings.

As a result of the company’s plans to expand its current facility in the city of Greenville to increase manufacturing and office space, it was awarded a $150,000 Michigan Business Development Program grant.

“Michigan was chosen over competing sites in Indiana and Kentucky for this investment,” Emmons said. “This project is an illustration of the impact we can have to improve our state by helping attract new jobs and opportunities while also getting a substantial return on our investment.”
