An Elkhart, Ind.-based RV supplier has received a $400,000 Community Development Block Grant for its factory in Cassopolis, Mich., according to a report in the Elkhart Truth.
The grant, from the Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF), is for on-the-job training for a local expansion project for Postle Aluminum.
“This news means jobs and is outstanding news for people of Cassopolis and the entire southwest Michigan community,” said Mich. Sen. John Proos, R-St. Joseph. “I applaud the Cassopolis leaders for working together with the Michigan Strategic Fund, the Michigan Economic Development Fund and Postle Aluminum to make possible this invaluable training opportunity. I also want to thank Postle Operating for their making a multi-million dollar commitment to the Cassopolis community and the entire state.”
Postle is a producer of extruded aluminum products for recreational vehicles and is investing more than $12.6 million in the expansion project, which will increase the company’s production capabilities and create up to 40 new full-time jobs over the next two years.
