Statement of MMA President & CEO John J. Walsh on Massive Investments Announced by General Motors

LANSING (Jan. 25, 2022) — The Michigan Manufacturers Association (MMA) today released the following statement from MMA President & CEO John J. Walsh in response to GM’s announcement of anticipated investment of $7 billion in Michigan related to electric vehicle development.

On behalf of MMA, our Board of Directors and our more than 1,700 members, I heartily congratulate GM on the massive investments that will be felt throughout the supply chain, in related industries and in communities and families across the state.

GM’s commitment reflects the possibilities that arise through the cooperation of businesses with local communities and the State of Michigan, as well as the bipartisan support provided by the State Legislature and the Governor’s office.  

MMA’s message for many years has been strong and unwavering: Michigan must be at the table with talent, a healthy business environment and tailored economic incentives amidst the aggressive efforts of other states to compete for manufacturing capital and job investments. GM’s announcement is proof that this winning combination will bring business investment and growth to our state.
