Ohio Cookie and Cracker Maker Relocating to Tecumseh
Ohio-based Consolidated Biscuit Company (cbc)
will invest $12 million in a new manufacturing
center in Tecumseh, taking over the vacant Tecumseh
Products plant. The cbc expansion, its first operation
in Michigan, is expected to create 1,058 new jobs,
including 500 directly by the company. Based on the
medc’s recommendation, the mega board approved a
state tax credit valued at $5.4 million over 10 years to
help convince the company to choose Michigan over
Kentucky. In addition, the medc will make available up
to $125,000 in job training funds through the Economic
Development Job Training program. To support the
project, the city of Tecumseh is considering a 12-year
tax abatement valued at $867,000.
Michigan is diversifying its economy and stimulating job creation in growth industries.
