Members of the Sturgis City Commission have granted a 12-year tax abatement to Johnson Precision Mold and Engineering.
Located in the North Centerville Road business park, the company is investing more than $100,000 in new equipment – primarily a high-speed machining center.
Cathy Knapp, manufacturing specialist for the city, said the investment allows the company to increase its sales.
In addition, Knapp said the quality of the company’s products should also improve with the newer technology.
Company officials said the investment would help retain seven jobs and has the potential to create two new jobs.
