(LANSING) – A State transportation grant will help a Sturgis business and put funds towards resurfacing a city street.

VCI Incorporated recently moved into a vacant building on West Dresser Drive in Sturgis and will be investing $1.6 million in new equipment. The firm, which manufactures parts for the military and aerospace, automotive and energy industries, will create 20 jobs and retain an additional 20 jobs at their new facility.

As a result of VCI's expansion, State Representative Matt Lori of Constantine says the Michigan Transportation Economic Development Fund will contribute $76,300 to resurface West Dresser Drive in front of the facility, with an $88,600 match from the City. The resurfacing project will allow all-season access to U.S. 12.

Lori says this project is a shining example of how, by making Michigan a more business-friendly state, we are ensuring a bright future for our children and their children.

Lori says VCI considered South Carolina for its expansion but chose to stay in Michigan because of the reforms the State has made in the past four years.
