(CASSOPOLIS) – A state grant has been awarded to a Cassopolis firm that will create 40 full time jobs over the next two years.

State Representative Matt Lori of Constantine announced that a $550,000 state grant has been awarded to Postle Operating in Cassopolis. The Michigan Strategic Fund has awarded a Community Development Block Grant for job training to the company, which produces extruded aluminum products for recreational vehicles.

Postle Operating is investing nearly $10 million to expand its Cassopolis facility, which will grow its production capabilities and create the 40 permanent jobs. The company says 21 of the jobs will be held by low to moderate income workers.

In 2013, Postle Operating received a $400,000 CDBG for on the job training, and has been meeting both its compliance obligations as well as job creation milestones for that grant.

The village of Cassopolis will support the expansion by waiving utility connection fees of $10,395.
