Loc Performance Products, Inc. is expanding into the Lansing, Mich. market, creating up to 700 new jobs and enhancing manufacturing capabilities to its customers in the defense and industrial markets.

Loc’s acquisition of Demmer Corporation operations at 1600 N. Larch St. in Lansing, Mich. is expected to generate a total capital investment of $96.5 million and create 700 jobs, resulting in a $7 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant by the Michigan Strategic Fund.

Approximately 500 of the 700 jobs will be created in the Lansing area and 200 in Plymouth, where Loc is headquartered. The firm acquired the Demmer site in July 2017.

“Immediate job openings are available for machinists, metal fabrication, welding, assembly, design and quality engineering, quality management, program and supply chain management,” said Lou Burr, CEO of Loc Performance Products. “While pay for those jobs varies, people who take part in Loc’s apprenticeship program can earn about $25 per hour after three years,” he added.

The Lansing area’s strong skilled manufacturing workforce is part of what drew the company to the city. The company selected Michigan over competing sites in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The Lansing Economic Area Partnership plans to sponsor a job fair to assist in attracting talent for the new positions. Individuals interested in careers with Loc should visit: https://locperformance.com/#starttheconversation.
