      New jobs for Grand Blanc Township

      TMI Climate Solutions is expanding its headquarters facility in Grand Blanc Township.

      According to a news release, the expansion represents a $6.2 million investment and will result in 30-50 new jobs over the next three years.

      The company, formerly known as TMI Custom Air Systems is a major manufacturer of custom air handling systems and mechanical "penthouses". The company currently has 150 employees. TMI has expanded its customer base beyond primarily automotive to include emerging markets such as hospitals, universities, laboratories and large commercial and government facilities. In addition, TMI has exported products to Australia, Canada, China, Dubai, Mexico and the United Kingdom.

      According to Jim Huff, the companyâ??s CEO, the larger facility adds 50,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 9,000 square feet of office space to meet growing client demand.

      â??Our growth will help us add additional 20-ton and 30-ton cranes,â?? said Huff.

      Micki Hoffman, Supervisor of Grand Blanc Township says the expansion of TMI is a good thing for Grand Blanc.

      â??The investment ... is a sign that the township is a good place to do business and that we can play a role in the global economy. We have worked closely with TMI for many years and congratulate them on their continued success.â??
