India-based Comstar chose Tecumseh, Michigan, to be the home for their first North American facility. It is not only a manufacturing facility, it is also Comstar’s North American Headquarters.
The company bought an existing building in Tecumseh’s industrial park and created 15 jobs to get started. The first products to be made here are the engine starters for Ford Motor’s diesel truck line.
$85 million investment
15 jobs created
First North America location and will be the North American Headquarters
We took possession of the building on the first of March and had a lot of prep to do in a short time frame. Everyone in city management and the community were wonderfully supportive of us meeting our launch goal of late April.
