Posted Friday, December 9, 2011 by Don Kapuscinski
Two hundred new jobs will be coming to Eaton Rapids, Michigan through building wind turbines. This was the announcement highlighted recently at the event at Dowding Industries/ Astraeus Wind Energy, where the BlueGreen Alliance was joined by Senator Debbie Stabenow as well as business, labor, environmental, civic and investor leaders. To further emphasize the importance and opportunity in Michigan to create good, green jobs, the event also marked the release of the BlueGreen Apollo Alliance’s Michigan Green Manufacturing Action Plan (GreenMAP) report, which provides a blueprint for growing green manufacturing jobs in Michigan and increasing clean energy in Michigan.
Dowding Industries in Michigan has a new machine that is producing the casting for wind turbines better by producing them faster than anywhere in the world, in just four and a half hours – not the standard 30 hours, catalyzing the growth of this clean energy industry and bringing jobs to the state. Now working with URV USA, the parts for wind turbines will be cast just 100 feet away. Event host Astraeus Wind is a partnership Dowding Industries and MAG Industrial Automation Systems, build wind energy components.
