It amazes us that some people still perceive Lansing as a "rust belt" city. This could not be further from the truth. We are a global, sophisticated, modern, pro-business city with a cadre of the world's most advanced manufacturing companies.
Over the past four years our manufacturing community has diversified rapidly. By utilizing our talented workforce and harnessing the cutting edge research of Michigan State University, our companies are producing products the likes of which the world has never seen. From the two most technologically advanced General Motor's assembly plants to medical devices, our companies are making it all.
Below are just a few examples of what we make in Lansing:
XG Sciences Inc. - Production of carbon nano-particles.
Niowave Inc. - Components for atomic cyclotrons and particle accelerators.
Barnes Aerospace - Aerospace components.
Pratt and Whitney - Aerospace components.
Symmetry Medical - Medical trauma plates and artificial joints.
Demmer Corp. - Armored vehicles, aerospace, defense products.
Let's just say, if it can be made, it is being made in Lansing.
Although they all make different products, these companies do have one thing in common: the support of a pro-business community and government. So if you are producing a cutting edge product, the city of Lansing has the incentives and the talent to make your business boom.
