COMSTOCK (WKZO) --Good news on the jobs front in Kalamazoo County. Bangor based Getman Corporation has announced plans to sink 5.5-million dollars into a new plant in Comstock, and create 150 new jobs over the next three years.
The firm manufactures custom mobile equipment for underground mining. This week it’s received a 300-thousand dollar grant from the MEDC to help fund the expansion.
The jobs, for welders and other skilled trades will pay about 17-dollars an hour on average.
The firm says it has outgrown its facility in Bangor, and had looked at some locations in Indiana but decided to stay in Southwest Michigan.
