Knapp says the investment makes it possible for Mayer Tool to do some necessary upgrades to keep up with their customer's demands. It will also allow Mayer Tool to create two new jobs, bringing their workforce up to 39.

Sturgis Mayor Ken Malone says he's glad to see this kind of technology coming to Sturgis businesses, allowing them to expand and hire more employees. ...... {LISTEN}.
