Van-Rob plans to expand parking lot for growing work force

In a brief session on Monday, Jan. 13, Tecumseh Planning Commission members reviewed proposed plans to expand parking spaces at Van-Rob Tecumseh, formerly Lenawee Stamping Corporation.“Basically, they are expanding their parking lot because of the increased number of employees they have there now,” said Building Department Director Brad Raymond. Raymond said company officials informed the city that there are approximately 820 employees at the plant now, including both full-time and temporary workers.“The problem is when a shift changes, there are people coming and going and that can cause a problem,” said Raymond. “Increasing the parking lot size should help to remedy that.”Last year the company received an incentive grant valued at $5.3 million for investment through the Michigan Business Development Program. Tecumseh City Council later approved a 100 percent tax abatement for the company to assist Van-Rob in retaining existing jobs and adding more over the next several years.The city is also working with the company on a future road project, which will add a turn-lane at the Van-Rob entrance on M-50.
