American Axle and Manufacturing appears to be in store for a new product line that could generate at least 200 new jobs at the Three Rivers plant.
Company officials said the local plant would benefit from American Axle’s $1.1 billion overall corporate expansion to create components for a passenger/crossover vehicle being developed and introduced by a yet-unnamed manufacturer.
A public hearing on a 12-year tax abatement for machinery and building improvements was slated to take place at Tuesday’s Three Rivers City Commission meeting. City Clerk Lindsay Howes, however, said the hearing has been moved to the Jan. 18 meeting.
Further details of the potential plan are expected to be announced by company officials.
